"My law practice is founded on the premise that a client's goals must always guide any planning decision, and that even complex matters can be made simpler, or at least understandable, when viewed through this lens.”

(PRWEB) March 11, 2014

Tye J. Cressman, an attorney who practices estate planning, elder law, and estate administration, has completed his first book “Ten Tough Conversations: Successfully Discussing Issues of Aging with Our Parents”: a book that seeks to promote the concepts of independence, dignity, and self-governance as pillars of central importance to the process of successful aging for parents.

About his background, which provided the framework for this title, Cressman says: “I am a frequent lecturer on the subjects discussed in this book, speaking to dementia-support groups, local bar associations, and Continuing Legal Education programs. My law practice is founded on the premise that a client's goals must always guide any planning decision, and that even complex matters can be made simpler, or at least understandable, when viewed through this lens.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Tye J. Cressman’s book provides a recommended step-by-step approach for ensuring that a parent's aging process is simple, successful, and designed to ensure family stability throughout periods of potentially difficult transition.

Every day in America, over the phone and at the kitchen table, children and parents are discussing some of the most complex matters they will ever face. In most cases, neither the child nor the parent expected such talks to take place. Aging is inevitable, but most people are unprepared to discuss the practical effects of a parent's transition from full independence to semi-dependent living.

This is a book that looks to guide a child towards successfully discussing a variety of subjects with a parent that are often inevitable, and always somewhat uncomfortable:

(1) When is it time for a parent to stop driving?
(2) How do Powers of Attorney work?
(3) When is it time to bring caregivers into a parent's home?
(4) Is it time to admit a parent to a nursing home?
(5) How will parents pay for nursing home care?

These conversations (and 5 more) are the types of conversations that most families will have, sooner or later. How a family handles these talks can determine the success of a parent's aging process. When properly handled, these conversations, and the attendant planning they encourage, can ensure family stability and successful aging.

Readers who wish to experience this thoroughly researched and highly informative work can purchase “Ten Tough Conversations: Successfully Discussing Issues of Aging with Our Parents” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
