Special Guest: Carolyn Brent

America's Caregiver Empowerment Strategist, 

™ Carolyn A. Brent, MBA  is the author of number one bestselling book Why Wait? The Baby Boomer's Guide to Preparing Emotionally, Financially & Legally for a Parent's Death, which is a guide for family caregivers and aging parents. As a speaker, she travels throughout the United States lecturing about the importance of adult siblings and parents having what she calls "crucial conversations" in preparation for the end-of-life issues they may face, so that instead of being torn apart, they can come together as a strong family. She is committed to enhancing the lives of family caregivers and their aging parents throughout the world. Today's discussion will center around items like:

  • How many up-paid caregivers are there in the U.S.?  
  • How and why should we plan for care giving? 
  • How & when do we start having family conversations about care giving and end of life?  
  • Who are the people taking care of their loved ones?  
  • What are the costs of being a caregiver (emotional,financial, legal) ?
  • What are the common mistakes caregivers make?
  • Why do caregivers forget to take care of themselves?
  • What do caregivers need to do to take care of their own self?
  • What is Family Medical Leave act (FMLA) and why should caregivers use it?
  • Why should families work together regarding the responsibilities of care-giving?
