Prior to beginning a family caregiving journey, it is important to discuss a loved one’s wants, needs, values and preferences. To prepare for future care and treatment of a loved one, take the time to communicate and learn what matters most to that person before the information may be difficult to communicate or the circumstances change. Through creating a Lifestyle Care Plan, individuals will get a better idea of the little things that can help increase the quality of life of their loved ones.

Presenter: Kathy Kilpatrick, a Speech-Language Pathologist and Memory Fitness/Brain Health Specialist focused on Geriatric Life Enhancement. She has over 35 years’ experience in home health care. She is also a motivational speaker and author who developed the Communication Connection website and programming.

This is a small-group discussion and the number of caregiver participants is limited. Not familiar with Zoom? Join a brief orientation session at 9:30 a.m. before the presentation begins.
