What we're about

- Would you like to talk to your spouse, adult children, grandchildren or friends about aging related concerns, but don’t feel heard and understood?

- Are you facing challenging conversations and difficult decisions about your or your loved ones’ future that bring up strong and often uncomfortable emotions?

- Or are you helping older family members or friends navigate the challenges of aging and find it difficult to communicate and reach agreements about their plans for the future?

- Or maybe you are a family or professional caregiver for older adults and would like to support them during difficult discussions and decisions?

If you said "yes" to any of these questions, join "Compassionate Communication for AGING IN HARMONY" and become part of a community that helps each other have difficult conversations on the journey of aging. During our participatory workshops (online and in-person), you can learn how to effectively engage in heart to heart conversations about the challenges of aging. In small group exercises and role plays, you can practice Compassionate Communication using examples from your own life. In the process, you'll connect with others facing similar struggles as yourself and can find "practice buddies", so you can use the time between our workshops to try out what you've learned and deepen your new skills.

How to Ask for What You Want In Ways to Get Heard: Practice Making Requests

Are you an Elder, or a family or professional caregiver for aging loved ones? Since the start of the COVID pandemic, we depend on each other more than ever. Maybe you're hesitant to ask for support, because you’re afraid to impose on others or to get hurt if they say no?

Join us for the December Zoom session of HEART TO HEART CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE CHALLENGES OF AGING to learn and practice a new way to ask for what you need, in order to create mutual understanding and increase the chances to get the response you would like. You'll have an opportunity to learn with and from others like you and practice together in participatory exercises - just in time for holiday family gatherings.
