“Holidays and Tough Conversations”

Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking on “Holidays and Tough Conversations” at The Hearth at Tuxis Pond in Madison, CT.  It’s a timely topic: when families gather for the holidays they may find that family situations have changed since they last gathered: a loved one may be more frail, a caregiving plan in place may no longer be adequate, or siblings may see the situation through very different perspectives.  I talked about how elder mediation can help, as well as some practical tips that families can use themselves to handle these tough — but essential — conversations.  The group had some insightful questions that provided helpful scenarios for putting these tips to work.

This week, on Thursday, November 18, 2010, I will be speaking again on this topic at The Hearth at Gardenside, from 5:30 to 7:00, and the public is welcome to attend.
