Lou Forster – 6PR

Head of Brand and People, Chorus

Are you nearing your golden years and haven’t had the conversation with your loved ones about what you want? Is your mum or dad getting on a bit, but you just don’t know how to talk to them about how they want to be cared for and how much help they’d like?

Research shows while eight out of 10 Australians believe it is important to talk to their family about care wishes if they become seriously ill, only one in four have had the conversation. Louise Forster from Chorus Aged Care, Disability and Mental Health Services gives us her take on how to have this important chat with our loved ones, and what it needs to cover.

Have you had this conversation about your twilight years?
