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 in-home care or assisted living? Have the parents created advanced health care directives?
These conversations can be emotionally charged for both the parents and their children, but involve topics that should be addressed to smooth decision-making about 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. This presentation will help guide you through these very difficult conversations.

Ginger McMurchie, Elder Care Management owner and Care Manager, will share her experience and knowledge during this informative one hour presentation, with opportunities for Q&A.  The presentation is hosted by Eskaton Village Placerville; all community residents and families are invited as well as the general public. Please RSVP to Jane Young or Laurie Randall: (530) 295-3400
