We are in the midst of a major demographic transition in the U.S. The population of older Americans (aged 65 and over) is expected to balloon from 40 million today to 70 million in 2030. And an increasing number of adults are caring for an aging parent: family caregivers provided 12.5 billion hours of care in 2011. Many adult children don’t know where to turn to broach those diffcult issues with parents who are slowly losing control of their physical and mental faculties. How do you begin to talk with your elderly mother about getting more help in the home? When do ask your dad to give up the car keys? Join Alexis Press (I’84), Administrator for Home Care Assistance in McLean, VA as she shares her insight into answering these important questions as we become the primary caregivers for our loved ones. A Q&A component will be included.

Alexis Press is a 1984 Georgetown graduate with B.S. degree in French from the School of Language and Linguistics. She continued her studies at the Univeristy of Texas where she earned an MBA and participated in a Joint MBA program with ESC Lyon, a leading French business school. While living in the DC Metro area, Alexis has held product marketing and business development positions in the health care and high-tech industries and is currently Administrator for Home Care Assistance in McLean, Virginia where she is responsible for office management, client development and community outreach to the area’s senior community.
