Care Managers: Working With The Aging Family uniquely focuses on helping the entire family unit through the process of death and dying, as well as helping midlife siblings to work together to render care to aging parents.
Care Managers: Working With The Aging Family adds proven techniques to the care manager’s repertoire such as family meetings, forgiveness, technology, and care giver assessment. Multiple tools are offered to better develop an effective care plan so that the needs of both the family and the older client are met.
