Who's Watching Mom?

Many baby-boomers worry about the care needs for an elderly parent.  Their parents may live with the uncertainty of chronic illness and disability and have a whole host of planning issues.

However, either caregivers are overwhelmed with conflicting information or don't know where to seek help. Such a lack of information, or the wealth of conflicting information, adds to their anxiety about caring for an elderly parent. Indeed, it takes a team to protect an elderly person and every aspect of planning should be addressed. 

Yoga in the Gardens

Sometimes the holiday season can get a little hectic. Unwind with Yoga in the Gardens at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. This is the perfect setting to help get your Zen on and relax for the busy weeks ahead. Make sure to bring your own mat, water and towel. Registration required. Free for arboretum members, $12 for nonmembers. Noon. Snyder Auditorium, 3675 Arboretum Drive, Chanhassen; 952.443.1400; arboretum.umn.edu
