Bridging Time: Helping Families Deal with the Consequences of Change
March 23, 2016

Many people are not fond of change. It can disrupt our daily routine and our sense of certainty. Change reminds us that we are not in control. But it's a given in life: everything changes, and so do we. Instead of resisting change, how can we engage it? Furthermore, how can we effectively support and serve others who are challenged by change? Join us as Jane Barton, MTS, MASM, CSA, of Cardinal, LLC, and FLTCIP representatives discuss understanding the process of change, loss, transition, grief, and mourning.

Image to Resistance for Assistance

Resistance to Assistance
April 20, 2016

For many people, asking for or receiving help is difficult. This is commonly experienced among families with aging loved ones. But if we understand the "why" behind the reluctance, perhaps we can overcome the resistance to assistance. The source of resistance varies depending on the individual, family, cultural norms, and spiritual beliefs. Consequently, we must invest the necessary time and energy to know and honor those who are going through change—including ourselves. Join us as Jane Barton, MTS, MASM, CSA, of Cardinal, LLC, and FLTCIP representatives discuss how to mitigate a person's natural resistance to assistance.

No doubt, you have planned vacations, parties, and holidays. We're encouraged to plan for things such as the educational needs of our children, our retirement, and final arrangements.
