Bridging Time: Helping Families Deal with the Consequences of Change
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.

Resistance to Assistance
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.

Plan Well to Age (Live) Well: Advance Care Planning
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. But how many
of us have planned to age well? Our aversion to the aging process may cause us to delay planning for future care needs. Join us as Jane Barton, MTS, MASM, CSA, of Cardinal, LLC, and FLTCIP representatives discuss
how we might reframe the process in terms of how we choose to live (instead of how we choose to die).
