The Kendal® Corporation is pleased to present its first podcast program, a presentation by Dr. Dennis McCullough, MD, author of My Mother, Your Mother: Embracing “Slow Medicine,” the Compassionate Approach to Caring for Your Aging Loved Ones. Slow Medicine advocates for careful anticipatory “attending” to an elder’s changing needs rather than waiting for crises that force acute medical interventions—thereby improving the quality of elders’ extended late lives without bankrupting their families financially or emotionally. Dr. McCullough spoke recently as Kendal Corporation’s guest at the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging conference held in Philadelphia.
In this podcast, you will hear Dr. McCullough’s talk, and the question-and-answer session following his presentation.
