Event Details

Helping Professionals Help Families Have Difficult Conversations

Presenter: Wendy Lustbader, MSW

Too often, difficult conversations within families are put off to another day. With the encroachments of illness or disability, a new urgency may arise to talk about what will happen when an elder’s care needs increase, unfairness in the distribution of caregiving tasks, which family members have a voice in medical decision-making, and tensions about money spent on care, as well as inheritance issues. This workshop will explore how professionals can avoid the pitfalls of taking sides in such family dramas, showing how to offer guidance and facilitate productive communication for the sake of decent care and peace of mind.

Date:  Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Time: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm Local Time (Eastern)

            Registration is 8:30-9:00 am.  Content will begin at 9:00 am.

Location:  Indianapolis Senior Center
                  708 East Michigan Street
                  Indianapolis, IN 46202-3624
