Happy Thanksgiving from A Place for Mom
Last Updated: November 23, 2017
As Thanksgiving arrives and the winter holidays approach, we send you our best wishes and bid you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.
We know that many of you will be spending time with your senior loved ones for Thanksgiving and the holidays that follow. When you’re visiting your elderly parents or senior relatives this season, you may find that they’re having some difficulty with certain daily tasks or that they increasingly need more help than you knew.
Having the Tough Conversation Over Thanksgiving
Though it can be difficult, it’s important to have the tough conversation with a parent over Thanksgiving about their health and well-being.
Our experts can help guide you through these important discussions with your senior loved ones, which include topics like health, housing and finances:
- Discussing Health with Aging Loved Ones
- Assessing Well-Being
- Financial Planning
- Legal Planning
- Assessing Cognitive Ability
These guides also offer helpful tips on how to keep a tough conversation positive and productive with your parents.
