Living Well Between Aging Parents and Adult Children


Presented by the Ingalls Creek Center for Faith, Calling, and Community

Retreat Goal: We are going to explore together the complex issues facing us in the 55-65 (ish) life stage years. We will take time in a beautiful mountain setting to consider the unique gifts, passions and priorities of this part of life’s journey with each other, our families, our communities, and with God.

Focus areas:

Presentations, Panel, and Small Group Discussions

Spiritual Reflection and Personal/Couple Renewal

Rebuilding Expectations in Parent/Child/Aging Parent Relationships

Outdoor Time for Walks in Nature, a Meal in Leavenworth, and Conversations with Friends

Topics & presentations …

  • Does anyone have a map? (exploring dynamics of changing and unexpected family roles)
  • How do I engage with my grown children? What does this new relationship look like?
  • How do I honor my aging parents? (tending to grief & loss, role reversals, support)
  • How can my significant relationships grow deeper and stronger when so much else is changing?
  • How is God speaking? What time is it in my life, and what is this time for?
  • God’s calling and my passions/gifts. What does it mean to love God and serve humanity now?
