Necessary Conversations: Between Families and Their Aging Parents (Paperback)

Necessary Conversations: Between Families and Their Aging Parents By Gerald Kaufman, L. Marlene Kaufman Cover Image


In this timely book, long-time family counselors, Gerald and Marlene Kaufman, urge aging people, their adult children, family members, and other caretakers to talk directly with each other about the decisions that lie ahead as they age. "Do it before a crisis hits," say the Kaufmans. "A good time to start is when the parents retire."
Necessary Conversations focuses on four primary areas:
  • Parents' finances
  • Parents' medical care
  • Parents' living arrangements
  • When to stop driving

  • This honest and resourceful guide for aging adults and their family members includes helpful suggestions for starting these conversations and overcoming confrontation.
