ROUNDTABLE #1: Partner Support: Help Me Help You - Being a caregiver is both rewarding and challenging. Being able to say “I need this time to myself” can cause guilt, resentment and anger in both parties. During this session we will discuss the importance of “me time.” Learn from our speakers and each other in this dynamic roundtable on how to communicate your needs to your partner/children. ROUNDTABLE #2: Changing Roles: Caring for an Aging Parent – Many adults in the baby boomer generation care for an aging parent. Having to manage bleeding disorders in your home at the same time can add additional challenges and stresses. You may find yourself asking, “How can I do it all?” This interactive roundtable provides you with insight from an HTC social worker and others in the group who will share their experiences. ROUNDTABLE #3: The Empty Nester: Who am I Now that My Child Has Moved On? – Has your child graduated high school and moved on to college? Gotten a job and moved away? Left to travel the world? After you breathe your first sigh of relief, bewilderment may set in causing you to ask, What is my role and identity now? Am I still part of my chapter's community? The bleeding disorders family? What’s my place? This roundtable will provide you with helpful input from others who have begun to deal with the same situation or who are experts on this topic. Learn what positive steps you can take to find your “new you”!
