This topic is broken down into mini workshops covering the financial, medical, and residential issues facing our aging parents and how to assist and guide them through the maze of information and options available in planning and decision making for the future. Most of the topics listed are ½ hour workshops. Two of these workshops can be combined for a 1 hour session. However, each topic is worthy of a full hour presentation, allowing more time for audience interaction and questions. Also, these topics are suitable to be presented in a series.
