Join us on February 6, 2019 for a discussion on caring for aging parents and preserving family relationships
Among the most difficult issues facing our clients and their families is caring for parents as they age. This can be an extremely stressful time for even the best families. We have seen life savings lost and relationships broken.
Carolyn Parr and Sig Cohen are authors of the soon to be released book: Love's Way: Living Peacefully With Your Family As Your Parents Age. They will be joining us to share their insights and experiences so that they can help other families successfully navigate caring for a loved one in a way that honors parents and caretakers a like. Also joining us for the discussion will be Jerren Pellicano, principal of Client First Health Solutions, and Melissa Pittman of Regent Healthcare.
Love's Way provides readers with a map through the weeds that spring up along the path as parents age and roles reverse. Using real-life examples from years of working with families in this season of life, the authors illustrate common issues that can send a family into serious issues: unhealed sibling rivalries, parental favoritism, greed, secrecy, and fear of initiating necessary conversations. Both adult children and their parents will gain tools to create their own win-win solutions that keep parents safe and autonomous and family love intact. Love's Way is both spiritual and practical and provides advice readers can immediately begin to apply, with stories from the authors' fifteen years as co-mediators, writers, speakers, and personal experiences as caregivers to their own aging parents.
Carolyn Miller Parr is a retired judge, mediator, writer, and public speaker. Since 2002, Judge Parr has practiced peacemaking through her mediation practice Beyond Dispute and Tough Conversations with Sig Cohen. Sig Cohen is a retired Foreign Service officer, fundraiser, and community organizer, and now serves as a mediator.
Hosted by Brightview Senior Living in Annapolis, Maryland, the presentation will be held on the evening of February 6, 2019 starting at 6:00PM. Light hors d'oeuvres & beverages will be provided.
Please RSVP to Taylor Patterson by January 23rd at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-263-1667.
We hope that this presentation can be helpful to our clients as we see all too often how difficult dealing with the aging of our parents and caring for our loved ones can be.
We hope to see you all on February 6, 2019 at Brightview!
