The Dance: Tips for Having Successful Conversations with Your Older Loved Ones about Moving

Redmond

Description

D’Anna Edison, MS, GMHS, LMHCA, CMC

Certified Care Manager with Aging Wisdom, The experts in aging well™

Countless surveys of older adults report their desire to stay in their homes. But what happens when aging-in-place becomes isolating and unhealthy, hazardous even? How do we have conversations with our proud, independent, at time resistant aging parents who could benefit from a move?

In this presentation, D’Anna Edison, a certified Care Manager with Aging Wisdom, will talk about the twists and turns of “the dance” that adult children often find themselves performing when navigating these difficult but necessary conversations. Benefit from D’Anna’s 20+ years of working with older adults and their families as she guides you through the goal setting and conversation process and helps you successfully choreograph your dance.

What You’ll Learn:

  • The signs that your older loved one may need help
  • Setting goals for success
  • How to start the conversation
  • Understanding the process: exercising patience and persistence
  • It takes a village: enlisting the support of others (family, friends, housing and healthcare professionals)

D’Anna Edison is a Certified Care Manager and Geriatric Mental Health Specialist with a Master of Science degree in Professional Counseling with an emphasis in Gerontology. She has worked with older adults and their families for over 20 years in a variety of roles and settings. D’Anna’s abilities to engage, listen to and advocate on behalf of older adults and their families has prepared her well for her role as Care Manager at Aging Wisdom.
