Differing Perspectives and Conflicting Goals Between Adult Children and Aging Parents
Caring for an aging parent or loved one can be a great privilege, giving us the opportunity to give back to our parents. Caregiving also, however, is often challenging, particularly when the view of need is different between the adult-child or caregiver and the parent or loved one. This podcast explores those differences to gain a better understanding of why this happens and offers strategies that make it easier to find common ground where solutions emerge.
In this episode, hosts Frances Hall, Founder and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity, Adult Children of Aging Parents, and AJ Kerley – Director of Professional Relations, Pace @ Home in Hickory, NC welcomes Mary Remmes – Eldercare guide, certified life coach, and relationship expert
