Caring for elderly parents is a challenging task that many adult children face. In 2022, roughly 17% became part or full-time caregivers for their parents.
Navigating caregiving can be especially difficult when siblings are working together to care for aging parents.
While the desire to care for aging parents is often driven by love and compassion, it can also lead to conflict, resentment, and tension among siblings.
Siblings may struggle with different expectations and priorities, balancing caregiving responsibilities with other life demands, financial concerns, and emotional stress.
However, with effort and a focus on compassion, siblings can work together to provide the best possible care for their aging parents while maintaining healthy relationships with each other.
