Family Estrangements in Dementia Care: Helping Caregivers Cope
Length: 2 hr 3 min


Sadly, family estrangements happen frequently. Sometimes the rift occurs because of distance or misunderstandings. In other cases there are more serious abandonment or betrayal issues involved. When family members begin caring for loved one with dementia, old hurts can bubble to the surface while new ones develop. Step-family drama, adult sibling rivalry, martyr syndrome, toxic parent/child relationships from prior generations and dysfunctional family patterns will be explored. This down-to-earth discussion will focus on helping family caregivers in identifying the best options for dealing with family estrangements while ensuring quality care for their older loved ones who have dementia.

Content Level: Beginner to Intermediate
