Talking Money

Denise
This morning, on Your Caregiving Journey, Ellen Rogin, our wealthness expert, shared tips on how to have a discussion about money with your aging relatives. You can listen to our show via the player at the bottom of the post. (I recommend you have this discussion as soon as possible, in essence, during the first stage of your journey.)

Ellen talked about ways to start the conversation, what information you'll want to get and the consequences of not having the information. We also talked about the importance of having a durable power of attorney for health care and finances. I also mentioned a helpful document for recording end-of-life wishes called Five Wishes.

How did you broach the subject of finances with your caree? What tips can you share that worked for you?
