Changing Roles: Children and Parents

Posted on July 19, 2015 at 9:06 AM
As our parents age, adjusting to their changes in mobility and cognition often pose a special challenge to adult children. Accustomed to being cared for themselves, now the children must assume more responsibility for their care. There is a saying that "It takes one parent to raise a child but 4 children to care for a parent". Our life-long relationship with that parent comes into focus with this change. Long buried memories and emotions may surface, conflicts and misunderstandings are elicited. With support, this time may become a period of repair or simply one of duty. Good counselling may help the adult child navigate this often complex experience so that one's parents' death leaves not more scars but more love.
