A Guide to Aging Parents

Fern Pessin

Caring for aging parents can be incredibly rewarding as well as challenging and often isolating.

Learn practical steps you can take to make communication easier, be prepared for the unknown, navigate systems that are already in place, and discover those that you can put in place as a family unit. During this session, you will learn ways to tackle tough conversation, how to better communicate and hear each others' needs, and get ahead of potential conflicts. You will also better understand what professionals can bring to the table and what advocating the family needs to be prepared to take on, what technologies can help with, and what emergencies you should be planning for before they happen.

A book signing follows the event.
