Join the December 3 webinar on family communication strategies.

Join the December 3 webinar on family communication strategies.

Building a caregiving team is one way that family caregivers can ease the burden of caring for elderly parents.  However, communicating caregiving needs to siblings and other family members can be difficult for some family caregivers.

All home caregivers can benefit from the December 3rd Home Instead Senior Care webinar on “Solving Communication Issues Within Families.” Communication is an issue that can have a significant impact on home caregivers, on the care that they provide, and on the long term stability of the brothers and sisters with whom they grew up.

The webinar is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (12:00 noon Central, 1:00 p.m. Eastern) and will run for one hour.

The past matters

By the time an adult child is taking care of a parent, he or she has a long family history with any other siblings in the family. Things which occurred in the past may recur or influence events in the present, including the roles that children take in caring for parents and the expectations or issues they bring to situations involving elder care. Unresolved family conflicts need resolution when they have an impact on the quality of care offered to parents and on the physical, emotional, mental, or financial health of the child with primary responsibility to provide care.

Goals

Our valuable webinar will help caregivers to achieve the following:

  • Understand the 50/50 Rule and how it applies to their family situations
  • Identify common hot-button topics that can lead to highly emotional discussions
  • Describe ways to help siblings cope with the demands of family caregiving
  • Understand ways to avoid or overcome sibling conflicts

The speaker

Molly Carpenter, an author, speaker, trainer, and family caregiver who brings years of personal and professional elder care experience and training to the subject, will lead the “Solving Communication Issues Within Families” webinar. Ms. Carpenter holds a bachelor of science degree in family science with a gerontology specialization and a master’s degree in education with a gerontology specialization.
