SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:
Who makes the decisions? Does the senior? Does the family? Do both? What if there is disagreement between the senior and the family? Who wins? Which vote “counts for more?” Do the doctor’s have any say? What happens when the senior can’t drive anymore? Who decides when it is time to get the senior’s affairs in order? What if there are step-children? What happens when it is time to go into a nursing home? Maria C. Janoski and Karyn L. Seace will discuss this and much more.
