Preparing to Guide Your Parents through Life

The role of family caregiver is often lifelong and can change as we progress through the years. Attorney and social worker Jane WOLF Frances ’64, J.D., M.S.W. has written a book drawn upon her own experiences of caring for her parents as they aged in order to help others. In Parenting Our Parents: Transforming the Challenge into a Journey of Love (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2019), Frances shares insights that may help one grow to embrace the role of caregiver for those who guided us in our youth. She offers advice for individuals struggling with issues including their parents’ need for medical care, housekeeping and financial management, and with degenerative health conditions such as dementia.
