I just found out about this event that is going on this Thursday. I usually like to give more notice, but it was too good not to post, even at this late date.
The event is called "Helping Families Make Tough Decisions" and the speaker is Dan Kuhn who is a MSW and a LCSW with the Alzheimer’s Association. He speaks and numerous events around Chicagoland on the topics of aging.
This program will address approaches that family members and caregivers take when its time to handle critical decisions such as driving a car, bringing help into the home, assuming control of the loved one’s finances, moving to a care facility, and choosing end-of-life options. Tools and strategies will be offered to enable families to make the best decisions possible and approaching the older adults in positive ways.
