Middle-aged women with ADHD face all of the typical challenges of aging — declining health, family concerns, career stresses, tough decisions about moving or downsizing — plus a wide range of ADHD-related complications.
- They feel like they don’t get anything done — they’ve been busy all day, but they have nothing to show for it.
- They live in disorder and chaos and have trouble managing their daily lives.
- They feel socially isolated. Many report that friends have moved away or that they haven’t been able to make friends after moving to a new community.
- They feel vulnerable. Many are divorced, and their adult children with ADHD often can’t provide support.
In this webinar, Dr. Kathleen Nadeau will share the first-hand experiences of older women facing the regrets and challenges of a later ADHD diagnosis — and how they overcame them. The stories and winning strategies are based on Nadeau’s interviews with more than 75 women with ADHD, age 60 and older. Her findings will be shared in her upcoming book, Still Distracted After All these Years, to be published in 2022.
In this webinar, women will learn to:
- Accept, understand, and develop strategies to reduce ADHD-related struggles
- Better understand life-long social problems and find ways to break out of social isolation
- Manage the parenting burdens related to adult children with ADHD who haven’t become self-sufficient
- Develop a plan to move out of destructive or dysfunctional circumstances and/or relationships
- Create a support network to increase self-esteem and build a fulfilling life.
