LIBRARY-TEXTBOOK QUALITY HARDBACK: Sarah Matthews, Ph.D. serves as sociology chair at Cleveland State University, and is the author of three books about aging. The number of middle-aged children... More > today who have parents is unprecedented. Having old parents, however, is rarely portrayed as a privilege. Too often parents are depicted as a problem for their adult children, in large part because of the disproportionate attention paid to the very frail, especially those with Alzheimer’s disease. The study reported in this book asked 149 pairs of siblings who had at least one parent over the age of 75 how they interacted with their elderly parents and one another as members of older families. The results are not only a more realistic picture of the full spectrum of later life families, but also a much more positive one.
