How To Know When To Take The ‘Next Step with Your Older Parent or Loved One with Dr. Corinne Auman

Journeying with an aging loved one is a continual “dance” of taking the next steps. But, knowing what the next step should be, when the “next step” is needed, and how to take that “next step” can be difficult. In this podcast, Frances S. Hall, Founder and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity welcomes Dr. Corinne Auman, gerontology educator and practitioner. Dr. Auman will help caregivers better understand the dynamics involved in determining when the “next step” is needed and how to truly help one’s older adult loved ones.
