Examine the changing structure of the family as America's population ages! As the United States' economy evolves and manufacturing jobs disappear, the prospect of each generation experiencing a standard of living that exceeds that of their parents' generation also disappears. Challenges of Aging on U.S. Families: Policy and Practice Implications explores this trend, presenting the latest original research on the changing roles of caregivers along with the economic and emotional effects on the family unit. Respected authorities discuss in detail long-term care and the standard of living of families, with a focus on the effects of changing family structures on families themselves and society at large. The coming boom in the population of the aging will impact families at several levels. Challenges of Aging on U.S. Families thoroughly examines the economic demands of aging on families, then focuses on different roles elderly family members are likely to play over the next several decades. Some of the issues explored include “skipped generation parenting” where children are raised in grandparent homes where neither parent is present, the impending economic impact of caregiving on families, the stress on families with fewer siblings to share the caregiving tasks, and the tendency for family members to live in different parts of the country and subsequently become unable to offer caregiver support. Detailed tables provide clarity of thought while comprehensive bibliographies offer further opportunity for study. Challenges of Aging on U.S. Families discusses: the economics of aging the implications of aging economics and emotional stress on the future of families the coming labor shortage of caregivers family-based intervention in residential long-term care shifting relationships between parents and their children caregivers self-esteem issues involving daughter caregivers paying family caregivers—as public policy a proposed policy of requiring adult children to care for their aging parents inheritance and intergenerational transmission of parental care the inherent psychological stress within skipped generation families Challenges of Aging on U.S. Families: Policy and Practice Implications is an eye-opening text for researchers, health professionals, social workers, counselors, caregivers, educators, and students.

There is so much to say about a woman who doesn’t know the meaning of the word “can’t.” Kimily has the passion to heal, deliver, and set free. God uses this passion to continuously renew her faith, instilling her belief that “with Christ all things are possible.” Although Kimily has had more than her fair share of obstacles to overcome, she is, what one may call, a “Bodacious woman of Faith” – an individual who quickly arises at the sound of God’s voice, with great conviction. Kimily will not stop short of carrying out her purpose and call in any given season. I don’t know if she realizes it, but she has the ability to empower life and prosperity in the life of another in the midst of a mere conversation. This life story is a great testimony of humility, acceptance, grace and love. It is with great zeal that I recommend this book to all readers, young and seasoned. At one time or another, we all will have addictions to overcome. Whether it is drugs, alcohol, sex, or plain negativity, true problems occur when an individual is not willing to face their weaknesses. When weaknesses are not acknowledged and dealt with accordingly, the individual is inevitably suffocated by their own challenges. When reading through the pages of this book, you will witness Kimily’s ability to persevere through the “miry muck” and walk forth in great favor and God given ability. To Kimily Thompson Jenkins, God is our father and He is a fan of your success. Thank you for understanding the process. You’re God Daughter, Absolute (Portia Bryant)

Marriage is supposed to be a uniting of two hearts as one, facing the obstacles of life, laughing, living and loving in concert. In sickness and in health...till death do us part That's what the commitment in marriage is; this commitment made before man and before God. It is a promise made without foreknowledge of what the future holds, but it is a commitment nonetheless. This book tells the inside story of one woman's outward life, as she struggles to live a married life void of love and affections due to a vast age difference between her and her husband. It addresses the unforeseen struggles she faces as she tries with all that is within her to stay and care for her aged husband when she so desperately longs to go. She now lives her life between these two choices. She tries to answer some serious questions about how and why she found herself in this position in the first place; and now even more importantly, how she can live with this situation today. When people are by themselves there are some times of expected loneliness, but it is tragic to be in a relationship with someone, living together, yet alone. What should she do? Choices- choices-choices!

Every statistics that was thrown at me never prospered instead, the exact opposite happened and what the doctors didnt expect to happen had fortunately actually happened.
