Presenter: David A. Smith, M.D., FAAFP, CMD, Geriatric Consultants of Central Texas, P.A.
Adult sibling relationships are diverse and sometimes complicated. You may not realize how complicated they are until you are suddenly forced to come together to deal with your aging parents. For many, dealing with family members is a major cause of caregiver stress. Dr. Smith will help sort out issues such as:
"I'm the youngest of five and my siblings still treat me like the baby."
"My sister has always been bossy and she thinks she's in charge."
"My brother lives 500 miles away, I'm here and I think I know what's best for mom and dad."
"My parents weren't the best parents to me - why should I have to care for them now?"
Dr. Smith will discuss complex familydynamics and how they can affect your ability to care for your aging parents.
