Caring for Aging Parents
Tuesday, April 21, 2015
9:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m.
The University Club of Chicago
Today’s expanding lifespan means that many of us will spend years caring for parents and aging loved ones. Regardless of the strength of a family’s relationships or the extent of their resources, the question of how to best care for an elderly parent and the associated legal, emotional, medical and financial issues involved can be overwhelming.
At this forum, we will take an honest look at the many decisions and responsibilities that come with planning for and managing the care of an aging parent. Expert speakers will address different aspects of this issue including how to start a family-wide conversation to address key concerns far in advance of a crisis, considerations when evaluating different care options, and working with your family’s professional advisors to determine when and how decisions will be made if someone becomes incapacitated.
Whether your family is facing this situation in the short or long term, and whether you are in the role of care giver or receiver, we invite you to join us for this important event that will examine this issue from multiple perspectives and disciplines.
