Our aging parents might be aware that they need some extra help but may still resist the extra attention you give to their needs. Having tough conversations with your parents about their future health and well-being can be difficult for you and frustrating for them.

In today's episode, Oliva shares some of the tips that will help make such conversations manageable. These tips can help you avoid the confrontation that may come with you trying to strike a conversation around their needs and getting help.  Use these general strategies to ease those hard conversations and change them into productive meetings that leave everyone feeling heard.

In a nutshell, she talks about:

  • The 3 hot topics surrounding critical conversations with our aging loved ones
  • Some of the factors you need to consider before bringing up such conversations
  • Why you should have difficult conversations when imminent decisions aren’t required
  • How saying something you will have to apologize for later can ruin the conversation

...and so much more!
