Talk: Live with the End in Mind!

Amy Praskac gives a brief talk about the importance of being prepared for a medical emergency or end of life. She tells stories along with lessons to be learned, shares observations from her organizing practice, and distributes a brief quiz to help you assess where you stand.

After I heard Amy speak, I was motivated to finally make sure that I had all in order-- will, advanced directives, and powers of attorney. I feel much more organized and peaceful as a result. And as a bonus, it's made things a lot easier for me to keep track of while I'm still here!

Thank you so much for coming out to talk to us. I am now motivated to get my notebook filled out and am trying to figure out how to ask those difficult questions of my family. It was definitely a real eye opener. I loved the stories that you shared.

I thought you did an excellent job last Sunday. Your presentation was right on target; the stories held our attention and let everyone know you've "been there, done that.”

Interactive Talk: Having “The Conversation”

Amy Praskac offers a presentation titled Having "The Conversation" about discussing aging and end-of-life concerns with your parents. Amy takes the light-hearted approach of putting on a play to help you plan your conversation with your parents. She shares advice on who to involve (casting), what topics to introduce (plotting), as well as when and where to hold the discussion (setting the scene). Resource sheets provided to develop your own production.

"Having the Conversation" was a great start for my brother and I to begin discussing our plan of action in talking with our parents. We received creative options in how to start the conversation as well as learned about some resources to help us along the way. One of the most valuable lessons learned is that it's not just one's going to be a series of conversations over time. So, begin the conversations now.
