Continuing advances in medical technology result in longer life expectancies. Consequentially, most adults acquire new responsibilities in caring for an elderly parent or relative, oftentimes a person with serious mental or physical impairments.
Family members, professionals, and paraprofessionals are increasingly involved in taking care of older people with serious mental and physical impairments who continue to live in the community. The quality of the elders life is directly related to ethics. Ethics addresses such morally important concerns as trust, relationship building, dignity, respect, and self-worth. It also helps us think about problems that cause deep moral uncertainties. This interactive, case-centered workshop will deepen participants' appreciation of the importance of everyday ethics while suggesting approaches to resolve difficult value conflicts.
