Bridging the sibling divide

Siblings can be a great support to each other when one or both parents require care. In some cases one sibling takes on most of the caregiving duties because the others are out of town or are otherwise unavailable. This can set up challenges for both the caregiving sibling and those not as directly involved. Several years ago we held a webinar with Clarissa P. Green to discuss this issue. She offered some powerful insights into how and why resentments can develop and she also shared some advice on how families can preserve family ties. The information she shared also became the basis for an article published in the North Shore Outlook.
