|Dr. Ken Dychtwald to Discuss Looming 'Caregiver Crunch' and the Importance of Proactive Long Term Care Planning|
This impending "caregiver crunch" can be attributed to a number of factors according to Dr. Dychtwald's research including, among others:
-- Today's adults will have relatively fewer children to count on for help, as today's elders have three or four children per couple, while boomers have only about two; -- Higher number of single people without a spouse to care for them in their older years, due to rising divorce rates; -- Family members may not live nearby due to increased mobility and relocations by each generation.
Members of the news media are invited to join Dr. Dychtwald for a discussion about the coming "caregiver crunch" and why changing family dynamics (Rubik's Cube®- like relationships) make proactive long term care planning more important than ever. He will discuss the importance of family discussion around planning for long term care, provide resources to help families initiate discussion around the topic of long term care, as well as highlight his own family's experience with long term care.
