How to Have Difficult Conversations with Aging Parents

Talking with aging parents about their legal and financial issues, driving, and independent living can be challenging for many adult children. Rationally, we know these are meaningful conversations to reduce uncertainty and minimize conflict for everyone. Emotionally, however, we may be concerned that our parents will think we are trying to take control of their lives. In addition, money management may be a source of tension between parents and their children in many families. So, having adult children ask questions and take on even minor aspects of financial management creates anxiety for everyone. Add divorced households, blended families, and extended families into the picture, and you quickly understand why many of us avoid these conversations for as long as possible!

This program will help adult children prepare for and hold courageous conversations with their aging parents about legal and financial issues, driving, and independent living so that adult children and their aging parents feel more confident that estate planning, financial concerns, driving decisions, and independent living issues are being comprehensively and effectively addressed.

Program Presenters: Amber Broadnax, Community Relations for Inspire Hospice & Pam Carter, Founder of Whole Health Advocacy Care, LLC
