Caregiving for Aging Parents

The aging process is not always kind, and for children of aging parents the stress can be overwhelming. We have therapists who specialize in the issue of caring for and decision making regarding aging parents.  Call us now or use the tool to the right to book an appointment.

Care-giver adult children often have children of their own.  The  responsibilities of caring for their aging parents can make life seem impossible, resulting in stress, anxiety or depression.

If you are currently in this situation, there is help. Capital Choice Counselling Ottawa offers advice and counselling for those who are caregiving for aging parents. Often, this means listening, offering advice and offering a neutral, supportive space for you.

Counsellors Specializing in Aging Parents

It can also mean dealing with other problems, such as anxiety and depression, that may arise from the stresses of dealing with aging parents. Other feelings may include:

  • Feelings of guilt or inadequacy
  • Feelings of resentment and anger
  • Grieving the loss of health or independence


We know how hard it is. We can help give you tools to maintain yourself and your family while you care for your parents in their later years. Our Ottawa counsellors can help you continue to have a positive relationship with your parents as they age.

Is aging parent counselling right for me?

  • I am struggling to deal with my aging parents

If the above statements ring true to you, aging parent counselling can help. Contact one of our Ottawa-based counsellors using the tool on the right.
