Age Wide Open is offering a series of educational programs to help adult children who are taking care of their parents. Each of these hourlong discussions will be held at 6 p.m. at the Downtown Bend Public Library, 601 Wall St., and will be followed by a support group session:

• “How to Communicate So Your Senior Can Hear You,” with counselor and senior advocate Ali Davidson, on March 4;

• “Alzheimer's and Dementia from a Caregiver's Perspective,” with geriatric specialist Dr. Richard MacDonnell, on April 1; and,

• “Medication Do's and Don'ts and Medical Warning Signs,” with a panel of geriatric nurses, on May 6.
