Carolyn Brent’s passion for helping caregivers started when she was caring for her own father, who was diagnosed with dementia in 1997. From that experience, she found that neither she nor her family truly understood not only the medical challenges related to aging and chronic illness, but also the financial and emotional weight that these bring to bear on a family. Many of us have parents who are beginning to need more and more care and attention. What do we need to do and do we need to know to be prepared? Carolyn will address these questions. It is her goal in life is to empower caregivers and their family members with the knowledge of the possible challenges they might have to face together while caring for an aging parent. This is information we all need before we’re confronted with the heavy decisions. Don’t miss what Carolyn Brent has to say about this critical topic.
Carolyn Brent received a B.A. in Business Administration from National University in Los Angeles, California, and an M.B.A. at the University of Phoenix. She is the author of Why Wait? The Baby Boomer’s Guide to Preparing Emotionally, Financially and Legally for a Parent’s Death, is the founder of Grandpa’s Dream LLC She is also the founder of Caregiver Story, a non-profit organization that provides free medical and legal resources to the public. Her personal mission is to enhance the lives of family caregivers and their aging parents. As a speaker, she travels throughout the United States lecturing about the importance of adult siblings and parents having what she calls “crucial conversations” in preparation for the end-of-life issues they may face, so that instead of being torn apart, they can come together as a strong family. As a result, they can create a supportive and loving environment that a parent needs in order to depart the world with dignity.
