Doing the Right Thing: Taking Care of Parents Who Didn't Take Care of You
Author: Eleanor Cade
Publisher: Hazelden Publishing, September 2002
Paperback: 184 pages
ISBN-10: 1568388799
ISBN-13: 9781568388793

Book Description
This book recognizes and provides guidance for a situation many prefer not to acknowledge. Some parents did not care for their children, but in old age, those same neglected or abused children may find themselves providing care for their parents. Caring for aging parents is difficult—it's exhausting, expensive, time-consuming, and under appreciated. And that's under the best of circumstances, when the caregiver loves and respects his or her aging parent. What happens when adult children are asked to care for elderly parents who were abusive, neglectful, or absent?

Here is a compassionate and practical guide to facing the psychological and emotional issues that arise when caring for aging parents. Eleanor Cade, who describes her own experience of caring for difficult/drug addicted parents and in-laws, offers sound advice as well as personal accounts from individuals who have made the choice to care for difficult parents. The result is a powerful guide to moving beyond feelings of anger, regret, and grief in order to build healthy new family dynamics based on decency and mercy.

Target audience: For individuals who are caring for aging, dysfunctional parents, as well as counselors and therapists who work with families. Very helpful for adult children of personality disordered parents who choose to provide elder care.
