Senior Downsizing Experts Offers Free Seminar for Adult Children of Aging Parents

Class offers strategies for effective communication and helps attendees create a plan for meeting parents' needs.

Colleyville, TX, October 29, 2015 --( As our population ages, more and more adult children are faced with figuring out the best way to communicate with their aging parents about current and future housing needs. Knowing how and when to have these conversations and what to say can be difficult and as much (or more) of a challenge as the actual process of moving and dealing with possessions.

To assist families with this challenge, Senior Downsizing Experts Ingrid & John Sullivan will present a seminar entitled "Moving Mom & Dad." The free informational event will be presented at The Conservatory at Keller Town Center located at 200 Country Brook Road on Thursday, November 12 at 11:00 a.m.

As real estate professionals specializing in the older adult market, the Sullivans have helped hundreds of mature homeowners, families, and caregivers with the home sale and purchase process – many involving saying goodbye to long-time family residences. They have used these experiences to put together a presentation that outlines the five most common mistakes adult children of aging parents make when assisting with late-life moves and introduce proven solutions for avoiding these mistakes. The goal is to help attendees with the necessary information to proceed with confidence and courage in their role.

Topics covered will include ways to:
· Communicate more effectively.
· Create a plan of action for future care needs.
· Locate suitable senior living options.
· Simplify the relocation process.
· Find and hire the right support when needed.
