This 6-week series of workshop discussions will cover a values-based approach to communication and decision-making in the context of a variety of issues related to aging and families/loved ones.

The following weeks will cover the topics: Sharing Concerns about Aging Issues (including normal vs. atypical aging); Exploring Living/Housing/Care Options; Approaching Health & Legal Issues (advance care planning; Power of Attorney, etc.); Understanding Family Dynamics (parent-child/sibling); End of Life Conversations; Dealing with Emotions (of self and others). Each session will include a presentation of the topic, discussion and questions, and practical tools and strategies for values-based conversations and decision-making in each area.
