The Arbor Company Publishes Guides to Help Families Discuss Senior Care

Premier Senior Living Operator's New e-Books Offer Advice to Adult Children and Seniors on Discussing Care Needs

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - The Arbor Company, an operator of senior living communities, today announced it is publishing two guides to help families navigate sensitive and potentially challenging conversations about senior care. The e-books, Talking to Your Parent About Senior Care and Living and Talking to Your Family About Senior Care and Living, are available for free download at http://www.arborcompany.com/lp-talking-to-your-parent-senior-care.

Conversations about senior care are often stressful. Preconceived ideas, fears, financial concerns and guilt can make these discussions difficult. The topic is emotional and must be approached with sensitivity and care. Arbor's new e-books offer advice to seniors and their adult children on how to initiate and navigate these conversations. Features of the guides include:

  • Understanding the facts about senior living before initiating a conversation
  • Tips for preparing for a discussion
  • Strategies on how and when to conduct the conversation
  • Advice for following up after the talk

"Conversations about senior living can stir strong emotions for both seniors and their adult children," says Chris Harper, The Arbor Company's director of communications. "However, these conversations can lead to decisions that sometimes must be made. Our e-books provide guidance to help families better navigate the decision-making process."
