Speaker: Ms Connie Comber, Positive Steps for Later Life
Family discord and dysfunction in later-life families (e.g. where there is an elderly relative moving into a phase of increasing dependency and offspring sibling relationships are in ‘over-drive’) is more pervasive than is “reasonable” to expect.
There are causes and stresses on family life at this stage that are not being fully understood or attended to. This session identifies the new insights into what’s happening in families at this stage and approaches in service provision that help – not hinder - family functioning.
