Doing the Right Thing illustrates how early parent-child and sibling relationships color-sometimes painfully-the caregiving experience in midlife. There exist many resources about aging that offer practical help for caregivers, but this book takes a new approach: it focuses on caregiving as a developmental stage that provides us with an opportunity to work out some of the unresolved issues still lurking from childhood, and to enrich the relationship between the generations. Based on the author's personal and clinical experience, Doing the Right Thing explores important issues such as: - how to set limits to your caregiving and cope with your guilt - how to forgive yourself when you feel angry with the parent for whom you are caring - how taking care of an elderly parent can bring siblings closer or split them apart forever - how taking care of an elderly parent can strengthen your marriage or destroy it - how gender affects caring for elderly more
