The fall has been busy as our Aging Parents seminars that bring the experts and families together continue to grow in popularity. My last two public programs offered in Boston for 2012 are noted below. I hope that you or your colleagues can join me.
Two weeks ago, I spoke to an overflow crowd of Harvard-educated executives as they shared their stories about navigating the aging journey with their parents and reflected on how to improve programs for employees within the organizations they lead. Last week, I moderated a panel in Wellesley, MA to help families better understand how to care for their older loved ones and themselves as they juggle work, family, and other responsibilities. This week, I’ll be moderating a program hosted by the Women’s Bar Association in downtown Boston on Thursday evening that is open to the public. And, on Saturday November 3rd, I’ll be speaking in another public event in Boston at the National Association of Healthcare Advocates’ Conference. If you have a personal interest in attending one of these programs on Aging Parents or if you know others who would benefit from expert advice for the price of a latte and a snack, please plan to attend if your schedule permits. Both events require registration, but last-minute registrants are welcome.

The National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants will hold its fourth annual conference in Boston. This three-day conference includes medical professionals and experts convening to discuss The Leading Edge of Reform: Roles and Goals for Healthcare Advocates. The Saturday program is open to the public for $25. My session will include a mix of families and the healthcare professionals who advise them. All workshop participants will receive a free copy of Don’t Give Up on Me!
I’m grateful that so many professionals donate their time and expertise to our educational programs. We are planning the 2013 calendar now, so stay tuned as we host programs in cities across the country.
