Sitting down with your parents to discuss legal, financial, and long term care issues can be uncomfortable. Brenda Dever-Armstrong, CEO/Owner of The Next Horizon: A Seniors & Military Senior Care Advisor / Advocate offers tips and suggestions on how to start the discussion. It is often difficult to ask questions about our parent's finances. Adult children often do not know much about their parents’ financial situation, whether they have enough money to live on or to pay for the care they would want. Often, families have not had discussions about how they view the end of their lives and what preparations they have made. Brenda's tips will provide you with communication strategies and considerations for these important discussions, and may help in opening a dialogue with your parents. 

Brenda has over 22 years experience in the field of residential care homes, home health care and housing referral for disabled veterans, which provided the base for the assisted living management service. Proud to be a military wife of 29 years living overseas and stateside developing pilot programs and activities for senior living communities and government programs. Public affairs and liaison for government programs with 32 years experience.
