How to Tactfully Initiate End-of-Life Conversations with Aging Parents

June 8, 2016

Whether you plan ahead or you’re thrown into a situation due to a sudden health crisis, end-of-life conversations are never easy. Couple that with trying to initiate end-of-life conversations with your aging parents. These conversations can be excruciatingly delicate and sometimes difficult. One must simultaneously tread lightly, yet boldly.

Daughterhood.org's mission is to support and build confidence in women who are managing their parents care.  Daughterhood.org and LastingMatters are working together to make daughterhood easier. 

The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping people talk about their wishes for end-of-life care. The Conversation Project has collected advance care planning tools and valuable resources from individuals and organizations to make available to people around the country.

Wealthcare for Women recently added The LastingMatters Organizer as a resource and guide in the section "Facing Life as a Widow".
