Mom or Dad may be healthy and independent now so conversations about care needs down the road have been pushed to the back burner. But as your parents age, you may find yourself in the role of caregiver one day. Planning ahead and communicating with your parent before a crisis can help avoid common pitfalls. Learn about strategies for proactive planning, options for care, and the cost of long-term care. And if your parent rejects the idea of help entirely, there may be ways to decrease resistance and enhance the likelihood of a positive outcome.
Harvard typically offers a School Vacation Camp program to give parents options during the February and April public-school vacation weeks and one hard-to-cover week at the end of the summer. The program generally runs on three campuses: Cambridge, the Harvard Longwood Campus, and at Harvard Business School.
The program is open to the children ages 5 to 12 of benefits-eligible faculty and staff on a regular Harvard payroll.
Please note that due to space constraints, there are a limited number of spots.
