“Caregiving Caused Me to Divorce My Siblings,” by Robert L. Peta, NextAvenue
“During the 15 years I spent as my mother’s primary caregiver, I heard this story endlessly from strangers and friends: ‘I’m caring for Mom (or Dad) and none of my siblings is lifting a finger.’ Sometimes, the deserted parent in the story had been an ogre; more often, they’d been, like my own mother, beloved by all her kids.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
We thank Lynn Voss of long-time Center friend and corporate member GoldenCare for tipping us to this article. Family support or its absence is another dimension of caregiving that gets too little attention.
