Description
We love her so much, but that doesn’t mean we want to be a carbon copy of her. Maybe we’d like to make some different choices, keep changing and challenging ourselves, not “let ourselves go.” The rest of our lives could be a long time—how to make the best of those years? We want to go on being strong, vibrant, attractive women.
Additional Information
Generational differences, moms and mother-in-laws needing care, adult kids returning home...these are big issues which many of us have no training. Don't beat up yourself; join in for this lively, humorous class, where I'll help you sort out fact from fiction about aging and caregiving. You can be a strong woman without giving all of you away!

About Creator
According to audience members, The Kari Berit Experience is humorous, thought provoking and kind. The audience can sense that she has one goal: To create meaningful dialog between generations with the goal of creating healthy boundaries. Currently the host of a weekly radio show on caregiving (www.kymnradio.net), Berit and her partner Eric Ramlo launched Age in Motion om 1996 with the goal of reaching older adults as well as those caring for them. Berit has worked with several organizations to create adult friendly organizations. She works to train sales staffs, educate corporations about different generations, as well as create adult friendly programs. In 2007, Berit wrote her second book, The Unexpected Caregiver. She recognized that caregiving is a concern for 78 million Baby Boomers and the book gives simple, common sense tips and tools to help caregivers. She also works with Boomers at workshops to help them discuss emotional issues. Some of the issues she discusses include: Lifestyle issues Mobility challenges End of life preferences Long Term Care needs Berit looks at herself as a catalyst to create a comfort zone for Boomers and their parents. “I make it safe to talk about ‘elephant issues’ in a positive setting,” said Berit. “This enables families to have an open dialogue about issues that affect their lives and as a result we can make a difference in their lives.”
