THE ATTITUDE SHIFT Aging Parents: Are You Prepared?
Are You Prepared….To Take Care of Your Aging Parents?”
There is a minefield of attitudes to cover in this show as we make shifts in attitude about caring for aging parents. So many questions to answer. One is – When is it time to care for your parents? Are they agreeable? If not, then what? Join us and get in on the dialogue as we discover what it is like from people living through this now or have already gone through the battle field that comes with too many differing attitudes from family and community.
On our panel is Carolyn Brent, author of Why Wait? The Baby Boomers’ Guide to Preparing Emotionally, Financially and Legally for the Death of a Parent. Also on the line will be friend of the show, Nina Wahcter and Sharyn Baer who are shifting as their parents age.
