Values-Based Decision-Making for Caregivers:
How to Negotiate Family Dynamics

Decision-making in families providing care for an older person can be fraught with tensions, often stemming from differing values of family members, as well as old feelings that can re-emerge in a caregiving situation. This webinar will present a model and tools for identifying one’s own values, and those of others, so that decision-making processes can run more smoothly and with greater understanding of the diversity of views in a family. This can be between an older parent and their adult child(ren) providing care and support, or among siblings. 

Objectives:

  1. Identify the factors that can interrupt effective and healthy decision-making in families. 
  2. Present the Hall-Tonna model of values. 
  3. Provide tools for identifying one’s own values, and those of others, so that more conscious conversation and decision-making can occur in caregiving situations.
