New Seminar seeks to equip, empower and educate adult children of aging parents
Those in the position of helping elder family members navigate housing choices face a weighty set of decisions and responsibilities. While every move represents a unique set of circumstances, late-life transitions can pose distinct, and often unexpected, challenges.
As real estate professionals specializing in the older adult market, Senior Downsizing Experts, Ingrid & John Sullivan, have helped hundreds of mature homeowners, families, and caregivers with the home sale and purchase process â€“ many involving saying goodbye to long-time family residences. In this new seminar, the Sullivans present an overview of the five most common mistakes adult children of aging parents make when assisting with late-life moves and introduce proven solutions for avoiding these mistakes. The goal is to help attendees with the necessary information to proceed with confidence and courage in their role.
Topics covered will include ways to:
- Communicate more effectively.
- Create a plan of action for future care needs.
- Locate suitable senior living options.
- Simplify the relocation process.
- Find and hire the right support when needed.
