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 results are not only a more realistic picture of the full spectrum of later life families, but also a much more positive one.
