Liz Salston, LSW, MSW, MA; Geriatric Care Manager
Caring for our parents is a difficult responsibility. A team approach is the preferred approach when making decisions…but siblings often come to the table with differing views of responsibility based on family roles and past relationships. The book, “Mom Loves you Best: Forgiving and Forging Sibling Relationships” will be used as a foundation to discuss the ways family members can come together to provide the best care for their aging loved ones.
