What a great kick-off session where our first hour flew by with short introductions and a couple of insightful comments from each panelist. This has been winding up to be a truly great educational series. Watching the first segment is a must-do since expectations and opportunities become apparent. Each Registrant received a copy of the Webinar PDF Tool called THE CONVERSATION MAP which has a series of thought-provoking questions for participants to use in their own time and help build internal family conversations.

This was a very compelling session with the two panelists of Mike and Kim. We were joined by a couple of our other series panelists (Margot McWhirter, Jeanette Bock, and Foti Hatzidemitriou).
Mike wiped away fears about renovation talking about how trust is established, what prospective clients should expect from a quality General Contractor in terms of project management. Kim, who also has a take on “project management” got real with us on his experience supporting his mother’s intent to stay alone at her large detached home as long as possible. This was a compelling piece of time with Kim, for whom we are grateful for his transparency, insight, and reality of challenge which can also find opportunity. From both men, we learned so much.

MARCH 10, 2021 (SEGMENT 4 OF 5) FOTI HATZIDEMITROU – CONCEPT2BUILD and MELISSA TOSSELL – SANURA DESIGN
Another action-packed hour of good information, diving deeper into how to design intelligently and build for accessible spaces in your home. The consistent message was to think ahead if possible and put a good team around you. The panelists for tonight Foti Hatzidemetriou and Melissa Tossell provided so much great insight and detailed advice. Along with Margot McWhirter who contributed a lot too since Occupational Therapists should always have a role when we’re talking about comfort, safety, and accessibility. So next week we really showcase that opportunity on the physical care inside your home wherever you live – now that we’ve renovated your space. ;- )

MARCH 17, 2021 (SEGMENT 5 OF 5) MARGOT MCWHIRTER -INCLUSIVE AGING and JEANETTE BOCK – HOME CARE ASSISTANCE
The final content-rich, compelling segment of the 5-week series Renovating to LIVE completed last night. Margot McWhirter and Jeanette Bock round it out in style with priceless insights and advice for adult children and their parents – as a team and individually – planning a good path to aging gracefully. Two of our other panelists Emily Miszk and Melissa Tossell who presented in earlier segments also joined us last night. Thank you to all our wonderful guest participants in this special Webinar Series. We hope you will share the word about Migrate Home and the amazing professionals associated with my business.
There is so much to learn from this segment – don’t lose out.
The key take-away messages were:
- Navigating health systems and residential options is complex.
- Have the Navigators that are also knowledgable Advocates. This group represents those elements in all aspects of your life as it relates to where and how you live.
- Communication between family members must start “early” and will be paramount to success.
- Think ahead to your best life because you will live long.
