Family - The Most Important Caregivers
In most cases, it is family members who are initially most involved in elder care, and it is family members who are the most conflicted in terms of how to provide the right care. Sometimes this requires long-distance involvement, other times live-in care. Disagreement over care and treatment can often create family conflicts that last generations.
