"After all those years of people going their own ways, get ready for more contact...indeed, much more intimate contact. Society still expects that "family will show up" (so do health care systems when elders are in need). Elders soon learn that having people with them who know them when the going gets tough is of great value. Marshal these loyal forces and get re-acquainted. Observation has it that at no time since adolescence are parents and children so entangled."

Judy Foreman hosts this webcast. As a person reaches their final months and days, do they need invasive and costly life-saving measures or should they be allowed to depart restfully? Join us as we speak with author Dennis McCullough, M.D. of Dartmouth Medical School about his book, "My Mother, Your Mother," in which he tells the story of how his own mother's passing inspired him to believe in a gentler, more compassionate approach to end-of-life care, especially for the elderly. He explains the concept of "slow medicine," how it differs from conventional approaches and why he believes it's emotionally beneficial for both patients and their families. Plus, he talks about why a less reactive, more nurturing treatment plan may make financial sense, too. As always, our expert guests answer questions from the audience.
