Aging Help and "Intergenerational Stress"
Tonight I will be moderating a forum on "Intergenerational Stress" at Emmanual Community Church. Sounds like a great idea--a program idea from the church and the Eckerd College PEL and OLLI programs. The idea is to start some conversations about things like caring for aging parents, adult children moving back in with parents or facing financial struggles, and grandparents raising grandkids.
I've invited a couple expert guests and I hope we have a really interactive audience. I think people have a lot of these issues to discuss and I hope they will use the forum for this purpose. Maybe the forum will spark some neat ideas. Communities embracing these concerns and working together toward solutions is what we need.
What do you think are the biggest sources of intergenerational stress related to caregiving? Why do generations often differ in their approach? What are today's families facing?
