Talking Matters: Conversations on Planning and Elder Caregiving

Washington, D.C.
June 4, 2019, 5:30 p.m.

Washington, D.C.

Hear and learn from experts about when to have the conversation with family members on how to prepare for the care of your loved ones. Topics will include navigating complex legal matters, decision making, managing relationships with siblings, managing financial assets, planning care management, and more. 

Authors Carolyn Miller Parr and Sig Cohen will kick off the event with a discussion of their book, "Love's Way: Living Peacefully with your Family as your Parents Age." Parr and Cohen found that many older adults resist having “The Conversation” about their wills, plans, and wishes as they age. They fear losing their independence and the freedom to change their minds. Adult children hesitate to push the issue because they’re afraid they’ll upset their parents. That leads to a vicious cycle of avoiding conversations about what our loved ones truly desire as they grow older. Following remarks by Parr and Cohen will be a panel of experts to dive deeper into "The Conversation Challenge" and solutions to this problem. 

As with all A2DC Events, tickets will include light refreshments and plenty of networking with like-minded aging enthusiasts.
