The Role of Grandparents in the Lives of Children with Sue Bronson and Linda Fieldstone

Eldercaring Coordination: Adding Room at your Table for the Rest of the Family. Intergenerational conflict can have catastrophic effects when family members disagree over the care and safety of ageing persons. Families must have a way to address their conflict, learn to put aside personal vendettas, concentrate collaboratively on their ageing loved ones and develop support systems that model dignified ageing processes for the youngest generations. Parenting Coordination for families with minor children was the model for Eldercaring Coordination, to serve high conflict families at the other end of the spectrum. Learn about the process, qualifications for Eldercaring Coordinators, and how to start a pilot site in your area.
