Circle Focus – Scottsdale, AZ

 100 Words of Wisdom from the Scottsdale Daughterhood CircleThe Desert Daughters

During the six months we’ve been meeting, our Circle continues to evolve. We “Desert Daughters” guide each other along the broad spectrum of aging: mothers nearing end-of-life in nursing facilities; tough choices between aging in place and care homes; financial and legal planning for our parents; navigating the complexities of our healthcare system.

In our group, there is no leader. No formal agenda, no handouts, flipcharts or whiteboards. We spend an intimate hour together, sharing our experience and strength, our hopes and fears. We learn from the daughters who have weathered the storm as well as those new to the journey. And we find it’s okay to ask for help. We realize we’re stronger together when we face the challenging road ahead.
