Talking with Residents and Families at Morning Pointe — Greenbriar Cove
I was pleased to accept an invitation to speak at Morning Pointe of Greenbriar Cove’s Fall Educational Series. I spoke briefly to the residents of this beautiful facility and their families about changing attitudes toward long term care planning.
The residents were very engaged, sharing their stories about what prompted them to need extended care and their high satisfaction with their quality of care. They also expressed their concern about the financial viability of their care, should their need outlast theirs or their chilrens resources.
Not surprisingly, nearly all of the resident attendees affirmed that they had lived longer than at least one of their parents. Very few had a parent or sibling that had ever required care.
I feel privileged to have spent time with these remarkable people — answering their questions, learning about their lives, and sharing some punch and cookies. I also look forward to meeting with the children of residents who requested a complimentary overview of their long term care planning options.
If you would like to schedule a lunch and learn, question and answer session or lecture about long term care planning for a long term care facility, trade group, non-profit or church, please contact us at (423) 698-1113.
