Elder Care Changes Family Dynamics

senior woman and middle aged daughterAbout 40 million Americans provide unpaid elder care to a loved one, the government says.

As these elders age, their needs change and these changes impact all family members, says a story in The Huffington Post.

Managing elder care can strain family dynamics, it says. The key is communication but this isnโ€™t always easy. Family members can revert to childhood roles. For example, the eldest sibling may be expected to do the most.

Other issues may include geographic location and individual finances.

The article suggests coming up with a plan with everyone giving his or her opinion. Outside mediation may even be needed.
