Your Turn to Care for Aging Relatives

Sandra W. Haymon, Ph.D. – Presenter

Oh My Gosh! Roles have reversed and now it’s ‘your turn’ to take care of your folks!! If you’re over-whelmed by the ‘Alphabet Soup’ (acronyms and jargon) used by medical and legal professionals, confused by the smorgasbord of care facilities, or think your folks are no longer ‘safe’ living alone, this presentation is for you!

Dr. Haymon Will Personally Guide You Thru the Maze of Caring for Aging Relatives.
Her Approach will Literally Transform How You Move Thru This Stage of Your Life!

In this powerful presentation you will:

  • Confront your myths and denial.
  • Decode the ‘Alphabet Soup.’
  • Explore medical choices and Advance Directives.
  • Learn to make difficult choices in advance. (An Emergency Room is NOT the time or the place to make life-altering decisions).
  • Appropriately assess your elderly loved ones’ ability to ‘safely’ live alone.
  • Understand various levels of care and corresponding living arrangements and care facilities.
  • Exchange being over-whelmed for clear decision making.
  • Understand stages of grief-Yours and theirs.
