Elder Care Services - Linda Worley
I have been a faculty member in the German Studies division of the Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Department for 20 years. In addition to being a faculty member, I have also directed the Teaching and Learning Center along with being associate dean of Undergraduate Studies. My husband, Jeff Worley, has been at UK for 19 years, working with Odyssey, UK’s research magazine.
I am holding the wedding picture of my parents, Hans and Elizabeth Kraus. After the deaths of our fathers, many issues related to caring for our widowed mothers long-distance arose for Jeff and me. UK’s Elder Care service was extremely useful in identifying long-distance resources. The staff at Elder Care also provided advice when our mothers decided to move to Lexington. They are extremely knowledgeable and have helped us understand the various challenges our mothers face and the likely trajectory of the aging process in each particular case. All along they have supported us as we try to support our mothers. They have our greatest admiration.
