“The Other Talk”

"The Other Talk" @ The Hawthorn Center | Columbia | Maryland | United States

Sure, you told your kids about the birds and bees when the time was right. But have you considered having “The Other Talk” now that they (and you) are older? Nobody enjoys talking about the end of life, but it’s important to make sure your loved ones know your wishes when the time comes.

The Howard County Office on Aging will provide information and resources to assist in your discussions with family members and caregivers regarding health, legal, financial, and end-of-life concerns. This FREE workshop will make “The Other Talk” easier for everyone.
