Has your family had “the talk”? Not the one about the birds and the bees– the one about who will do what when a loved one becomes dependent and in need of ongoing care. If that talk has not begun, it may be helpful for you to initiate that conversation.

Many people want to remain in their own homes as they experience increasing difficulty in the varied tasks of daily life. Yet many families fail to share and discuss the needs and desires of all family members and find the supportive roles to play. External help may also be needed.

Families may not know where to find those community resources.

To address these issues and encourage timely family conversations, Stan Freeman has designed a workshop to help them anticipate the challenges ahead and to organize to respond to those challenges.

The workshop lasts roughly 2 hours. Small groups will engage in four tasks to prepare them for initiating family planning talks so that they may best meet the needs of all family members, even those at a distance.

Sponsor: Gateway Seniors Without Walls. Cost: $5. Register: 889-3031. Contact Stan Freeman for more information: 866-4423 or 259-3623.
