Esther Koch, Gerontologist; Founder, Encore Management

The greatest gift you can give someone is your time. A scare commodity for you, it is even more precious for an aging parent or loved one. Yet far too many people embrace their caregiver role too late and see it only in negative terms. Esther Koch will explain how becoming a "facilitator of experiences" is not only the best prescription for caregiver stress, but it will also provide you with some of life’s most cherished memories.

The group's facilitator, John Nyquist, invites participants to suggest topics, which are then voted on. The person who proposed the most popular topic is asked to briefly explain why she or he considers that topic interesting and important. An open discussion follows, and the meeting ends with a summary of the various perspectives participants expressed. Read more »
