Modern Families, Elder Care, and Loss

Amy Ziettlow and Naomi Cahn

  • Draws upon in-depth interviews with grown children who cared for and now grieve Baby Boomer parents, stepparents, and ex-stepparents
  • · Highlights sensitive topics related to death and end-of-life care, such as caring for an ill ex-stepparent, seating arrangements at funerals, what people truly value in an inheritance, and how families choose to end life support
