As parents begin to have difficulties with the routines of daily life, “The Conversation” becomes unavoidable. Learn what information gathering needs to be done in advance of that first communication and learn how to initiate dialogue with your parents in a non-threatening way. We all talk about how to break the ice and what topics are most important. We’ll address fears and anxieties on all sides, share techniques to ensure that no one feels demeaned, and help you to work together with you parents to agree on a pro-active plan. Our speaker is Lucille H Deutch, CALA, CMC. Ms. Deutch is in private practice as a geriatric care manager with LHD Eldercare Solutions. She is also Director of Geriatric and Caregiver Outreach for Family Service of Morris County, serves the community as a volunteer with the Caregivers Coalition of Morris County, and has been a family caregiver herself for more than twenty years.
