Live and interactive discussion with the author of Your Caregiver Relationship Contract


 A thought-provoking discussion that will explore working through expectations, how to set caregiver boundaries, the need to structure hard conversations with mom and dad, and how to pull together a support network for caregiver self-care. 

About Debra Hallisey In 2015 life changed for Debra Hallisey. She became responsible for her disabled mother after her father’s death. As she took on the roles of financial adviser, caregiver, social director—as well as her continuing role as daughter—she found herself asking “what do I do?” and “where do I start?” She brought her 25 years of experience as a consultant building and enhancing corporate training programs for Fortune 500 companies in the United States and Canada to the problem and, in the process, learned how many other people are in a similar situation caring for a parent, a sibling, a spouse, or significant other. She has used the knowledge she has gained to develop AdvocateforMomandDad.com. The site offers practical advice for caregivers and lessons learned from others on how they handle challenges on issues such as legal, financial, insurance, and caregiving. A caregiver knowledge expert and an advocate for older adults and their families, Debra is a Certified Caregiving Consultant™ and Certified Dementia Practitioner®. She holds an M.A. in Leadership and Supervision and is currently taking additional training to become certified as a Certified Caregiving Educator (CCE) and a Certified Caregiving Facilitator (CCF).

12:50:39     From  Donna Plotnick : You are so right Debra. As a senior advisor, so many children do not have these conversations with their loved ones.
