What we're about

Are you an adult, age 25-60, with a challenging older parent? Is your parent becoming less able to live independently? Is your parent hurtful or angry toward you?

Formerly a MeetUp for adult children of difficult parents, this MeetUp is now for all adults who face challenges balancing the needs of their parents and themselves.

Dr. Paul Chafetz, a Dallas clinical psychologist, will facilitate group discussion, learning, and sharing. For the past 30 years, Dr. Chafetz has helped the frustrated and unappreciated adult children of older parents learn concepts to empower their minds, insights to comfort their hearts, and skills to improve their actions.

Dr. Chafetz will bring additional experts in various areas of senior services to the group to provide answers to any questions attendees may have.
