This webinar will provide a much-needed exploration of this important topic to help women better understand the aging process and realize that they are not alone in facing the changes brought on by it. The webinar will feature a panel discussion among four women living with paralysis who will share their personal experiences with aging and offer their insights, perspectives, and advice to women facing similar challenges. Topics to be covered include the physical aspects of aging, such as difficulty transferring, falling and shoulder pain, as well as the impacts on mental health that result from the loss of independence, loneliness and grief that come with aging; strategies for addressing these challenges will also be discussed.
