Dick Edwards, author of Mom and Dad … Can We Talk?, wrote the book for the 53 million adult children in America, the sandwich generation of boomers who face aging parent and care concerns. In his book, Edwards provides stories and quotes from adult children who have journeyed with their parents through their later years as well as practical advice for initiating caring conversations.

Edwards will share vital information during the presentation based on his 20 years as administrator at a nationally recognized model for excellence in a retirement living and long-term health care community affiliated with the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He will help attendees focus on the communication needs of aging parents and children and how they can engage in positive, open dialogue.
