To Move or Not to Move – Caregiver Smile Summit
In this session of the Caregiver Smile Summit we will discuss the right time to move a loved one.There comes a time in everyone’s life when the place they live no longer serves them. Human nature compels us to stick with what’s familiar, but that may not be the wisest choice. So what are the options? Tracey Lawrence, founder of Grand Family Planning LLC and author of the ground-breaking book, “Dementia Sucks: A Caregiver’s Journey – With Lessons Learned” will take us through the kinds of life changes that necessitate environmental changes. She’ll review the smartest ways to address change for the best possible outcome. From renovations, to assistive technologies, to hiring help, downsizing, exploring types of facilities, she’ll also talk about how to prepare for and finance your preferred transition.
