Wine Tasting and Adult Conversations

Wednesday, March 2, 2016
6:00pm - 8:00pm

It's all about Adult Conversations!

Come join us for wine tasting, appetizers and a light-hearted exploration of sensitive topics!

Adult children have an immense responsibility for not only raising their own children, but also helping their parents as they age. From technology to healthcare to finances, everything changes as we get older.

Jen Mulder, fee-only financial planner, will offer practical tips on how to tactfully raise the question of financial health with your parents.  Learn how to recognize early signs of dementia and proactive steps you can take to protect your loved ones from fraud.

Talking about sex won't get you pregnant...and talking about death won't kill you. Birgitta Kastenbaum will explain why it is important to talk about our beliefs and wishes for aging, illness and dying. Get tips on starting the conversation, important questions to ask, and the 12 action items to include in your NO PANIC File. Find out how you can support yourself and your loved ones in challenging times of life transitions.

Do your parents struggle to send photos, navigate Facebook or check email? Nancy Spear has immense experience in helping older adults successfully learn and operate all this new-fangled technology! And she can help you to help them. Take a frustrating experience and turn it into an opportunity to connect with your loved ones. Nancy will help you to get started.
