Dr. Amy D’Aprix is an internationally renowned expert on lifestyle issues related to aging. Dr. Amy D’Aprix is a life transition consultant, author, corporate speaker, facilitator, coach, and an expert in aging, retirement, and caregiving.
“Dr. Amy”, as she is affectionately known, uses her gerontological social work background to give practical advice and get people thinking about retirement in a different way.
Committed to empowering others to care for themselves and their families, Dr. Amy helps transform the lives of people involved in the caregiving experience. Her passion, understanding and empathy come from her own personal experience of caring for her parents for more than a decade.
She has recently authored a book: From Surviving to Thriving: Transforming Your Caregiving Journey, and co-recorded a CD with an accompanying workbook: Building the Bonds of Friendship in Midlife and Beyond. Clients and caregivers across North America embrace her warm, engaging style and Dr. Amy is a frequent guest on radio and television programs.
Dr. Amy has an extensive background working with seniors and their caregiving families, as well as educating other professionals about the needs of caregiving and aging. Dr. Amy has a PhD and Masters in Social Work, specializing in Gerontology (the study of the social, psychological and biological aspects of aging). In addition, she holds the designation of Certified Senior Advisor and is on the International Faculty for the Society of Certified Senior Advisors and the Canadian Academy of Senior Advisors.
Yes, compassionate caregiving for a senior family member can be a “gift”, not only for your aging relative, but also for yourself. Learning to thrive, not just survive, can be a transformational experience. This book provides powerful, practical strategies to help inspire, guide, and move caregivers to change their thinking and discover the true gifts of caregiving.
Dr. Amy teams up with her colleague, Vicki Field, a certified lifestyle coach, to help Boomers explore and enhance the art of friendship in their lives. The CD, “Building the Bonds of Friendship at Midlife and Beyond,” and the companion journal are designed to deliver a fresh perspective for the reader while presenting realistic yet simple strategies for transforming the quality of your friendships.
The International Federation on Ageing is an international non-governmental organization with a membership base of NGOs, the corporate sector, academia, government, and individuals. WE BELIEVE in 'generating positive change for older people throughout the world by stimulating, collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information on rights, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life of people as they age.'
The Society of Certified Senior Advisors educates professionals to work more effectively with their senior clients. We believe that the right kind of planning, recommendations and referrals can make aging a state to be savored instead of a fate to be feared. For those who work with seniors, that means understanding the key health, social and financial factors that are important to seniors—and how these factors work together.
Through a series of thought-provoking questions and exercises, you will explore your retirement in terms of relationships, lifestyle, home, and health, and how these link to the financial implications of retirement. Through this workshop, Dr. Amy helps people set retirement goals that look beyond the first few years of retirement or the big dream.
The people in your life greatly affect your health and happiness. Find out how to strengthen relationships with friends, siblings, parents, partners, children and grandchildren.
Dr. Amy D'Aprix will discuss potential solutions for the growing caregiver shortage and will describe how aging professionals can help guide families through the caregiving journey including navigating transitions of care, emotional struggles, the practical questions of finding and financing care that fits specific needs, as well as research highlights from a recent national study on the value of in-home care.
Thirty years is a long time to fill. What are the things that really make you tick and how can you work them into your retirement.
The Women and Money workshop is designed to provide information, motivation and resources that will help women improve their relationship with money. This workshop includes a series of thought-provoking and interactive exercises, video presentations and group discussions. All of these elements provide a means for women to discover how to improve their relationship with money and become more confident and in control of their financial life.
