Chat Transcript

12:03:48     From  Angela Baker : Looking forward to hearing from Pam! She's terrific!!!

12:13:21     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : https://caregivingwithconfidence.com/

12:21:55     From  Jerome Paulson : Do  you recommend that families find a geriatrician to provide medical care/ What are the alternatives?

12:26:14     From  Nolan Smith   to   Hosts and panelists : One of my challenges  as a nurse care manager is  balancing with wishes for self determination for the parent and the fears of the adult children for patent safety so their lives are turned upside down when unexpected crisis occur. Competent seniors ultimately get to make their own choices, albeit bad or selfish at times

12:26:49     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : Brain Health & Psychiatry Center - great resource if you suspect https://www.counterpointhealthservices.com/brain-health-psychiatry-center

12:29:05     From  Jerome Paulson : Can you expand on the role of an aging life care manager. When should one consider a consultation? Is this only for people with loved ones in another community?

12:35:00     From  Angela Baker : I am attorney in fact under power of attorney for my elderly aunt who has been a victim of a romance scam and continues to believe that this is a true romance. She has given away all her money to this person and all that remains is her social security - which I am managing so that she has the funds to pay her bills. Have you dealt with a situation like this? I have found it very challenging to keep her from trying to circumvent all the protections I have tried to put in place. Cell phones and the internet are very dangerous to vulnerable older, lonely people. Thoughts?

12:41:15     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : Article on Daily Money Management  https://www.retirementlivingsourcebook.com/articles/daily-money-management     American Association of Daily Money Managers https://secure.aadmm.com/

12:41:23     From  Ellen Pincus : Hello this is Ellen Pincus with Silverado Memory Care in Alexandria, VA cell 571-775-9408 ellen.pincus@silverado.com. Thank you Pam for this webinar.

12:42:57     From  Angela Baker : Yes. Now that I'm POA, I can see everything. Unfortunately, this was going on before I got involved and is the very reason I took on this responsibility. Thank you both!

12:44:52     From  Angela Baker : How have you overcome the "stubbornness" of our loved ones when it's clear that aging in place is not an option and the resistance to move is very great.

12:49:31     From  Angela Baker : Thank you for confirming what I thought would be the best course of action!
