Preparing for the Death of a Parent

by SingleLifeToday

in Entertainment Mon, Dec 5, 2011 
 
If one of your parents were to die today, would you know what to do? Have you become the parent to your parent/s? I have become the caregiver to both of  my own parents and it’s not easy. Due to my background in the cemetery and funeral business, I do know what to do, but do you?
 

This subject is never easily addressed, yet there is such a necessity to face this issue and be armed with the knowledge. There is a saying “We can lead a person to knowledge, but we can’t make them think”. PLEASE be armed with the information and listen to this live broadcast. In fact you don’t even have to be single to benefit!

I have invited Carolyn Brent, author of “Why Wait-The Baby Boomers’ Guide to Preparing Emotionally, Financially and Legally for a Parent’s Death”. If you in any way shape or form will have anything to do with preparing for your parent’s final moments you must listen. It can happen when we least expect it. Be prepared!
