The Parent Care Report
The baby-boomer generation (those born between 1946 and 1964) is becoming aware that they and their parents are getting older. This reality is causing many of them to see the need to talk with their parents about the emotional, financial, legal and legacy issues around aging. But many do not know where to start with these delicate and important financial issues.

Dr. Kevin Skipper and author Dan Taylor, bring you the Parent Care Report, It’s designed around the most current conversations that aging parents and their children need to talk about, and will help you understand the latest strategies, insights and news for having these conversations.

The program is delivered weekly to subscribers, and both monthly and yearly subscriptions are available right here in the Parent Care Solution Center.
