Conversations with Aging Parents
Are you concerned that your aging parent or loved one is no longer safe living alone in their home? Could they benefit from a more supportive and caring environment? Unfortunately fear and anxiety can hold us back from taking the steps we know would be beneficial for those we love.

Join us as Adele Lund, Director of Community Relations for the Laureate Group, shares her tips on having conversations with aging parents.
