Grandparents Raising Grandchildren: Coping Skills and Support

Thursday, November 30, 2017, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Children are being raised by grandparents in greater numbers than ever before. According to the 2009 American Community Survey, approximately 102,000 grandparents in Georgia were responsible for raising their grandchildren. These new households represent a transfer of child-rearing responsibilities from an absent or incapacitated parent to an older adult. Grandparent caregivers may also face a number of challenges, such as emotional, social, financial, and legal issues, as well as poverty, poor health, delaying retirement, inadequate housing, loss of personal freedom, and a host of other issues. Tonight Paige Powell, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program Director from the Athens Community Council on Aging, will give us some coping methods for this difficult role, and tell us about the resources available at the Council on Aging. She will be joined by Kelli McCain, ACCA Outreach Coordinator.
