Two generations of elderly in the changing American family: implications for family services

Family Coordinator

Author: Gelfand, D. E., Olsen, J. K., Block, M. R.
Year: 1978
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

Coping with the problems of growing old may be complicated by demands for economic, psychological, & social support for aging parents. The second generation, facing major age-related role shifts, may not be equipped to provide such support. Both generations are coping with their own aging process as well as with the changing family relationships caused by the process. Where such intergenerational family compositions exist, service providers must be able to understand the accompanying unique interaction patterns & maximize opportunities that can strengthen these relationships.
