Sibling relationships and the quality of an older adult’s care can be at risk when caregiving duties butt up against unresolved family conflicts, but with the approaches outlined in this web seminar, caregiving can make families stronger. This web seminar will outline the 50/50 Rule, a new program designed to help adult siblings improve communication skills and better care for aging parents. Learn practical tips to open discussions between adult siblings to help them improve communication skills, develop teamwork, make decisions together and divide the workload involved in caring for aging parents.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the 50/50 Rule;
  • Identify common hot-button topics that often cause highly emotional discussions;
  • Describe ways to help siblings cope with the demands of family caregiving; and,
  • Understand ways to avoid or overcome sibling conflicts.

Presenter:

Lakelyn Hogan is currently working toward a Master of Arts in Social Gerontology. Lakelyn’s passion for helping others has led her work with aging adults and their families as they navigate the senior care continuum.
