Revolutionize Your Retirement: Interviews with Experts to Help You Create a Fulfilling Second Half of Life
On the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 12:00 noon EST (which is 9:00 am PST and 11 am CST) I offer a free monthly call for all of you (and other people who may be interested.)
My goal is to bring experts to talk with you about “what’s next?” I’ll interview the experts for 45-50 minutes, followed by time for Q & A. You will be able to call in or access the call from your computer. More information will follow. It’s a free call, but you’ll need to sign up for the calls below.
If you are unable to make the call, go ahead and register. We will send out a recording to everyone who has registered.
This Month’s Program
Date: August 23, 2016
Time: 12:00 noon Eastern (9:00 am PST and 11 am CST)
Topic: Caregiving and New Tools to Help Caregivers
Speaker: Viki Kind, Clinical Bioethicist and author of award-winning book, The Caregiver’s Path to Compassionate Decision Making: Making Choices For Those Who Can’t
About the Program:
As a bioethicist, Viki gets a lot of questions asking, “Did I do the right thing?” or “Is it time to…?” Her goal is to make sure that caregivers make better decisions to begin with so they aren’t left with doubt and regret. Here are some typical questions she gets: I buried my mother and she wanted to be cremated; was I wrong? I don’t know if I did the right thing when I told the doctor to take my husband off life support? Is it time to move my partner who has Parkinson’s to a skilled nursing facility? Is it time for me to take my aunt’s car keys away? There is an unrepresented patient and there are no conservators/guardians available so who should make the decisions? I feel so guilty about … I think I made a mistake about …
The great thing about bioethics is that it has great decision making tools that create person-centered, respectful and compassionate decisions. She will be sharing these strategies and approaches so you can be an empowered caregiver and decision maker. In this program, you’ll discover:
- bioethical strategies and approaches for making the tough medical decisions.
- how to get past your guilt so you can live in peace.
- how to recognize what your role and obligations are when making decisions for others.
