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.
