*Unfortunately, due to current stay-at-home orders for Covid-19, we have had to cancel this event.  We hope to be able to reschedule once the quarantine is lifted and it is feasible to do so.*

Some of the hardest and most vital conversations we will ever have are with our aging parents when we discuss their wishes regarding their hopes and desires for the future.

Do they want to remain at home or live in a retirement or senior care facility? Is a family member in a position to provide in-home care, and to what extent? Are the family’s financial resources sufficient to cover the costs of these wishes? Have the parents created Advanced Health Care Directives?

These conversations can be emotionally charged for both parents and children and involve topics that should addressed so as to smooth out decision making for the future. Clarifying decisions together also helps all family members understand the basis for aging parents’ choices and can reduce conflict when a crisis arises. Certified Care Manager, Gail Arno, will help guide you through these very difficult conversations.

Light appetizers will be provided.
