Another Country Navigating the Emotional Terrain of Our Elders summary æ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Le adults in two career families are struggling to divide their time among their kids their jobs and their aging parents searching for the right words to talk about loneliness forgetfulness or selling the house Another Country is a field guide to this rough terrain for a generation of baby boomers who are finding themselves unprepared. I thought I d get a heads up on aging from the author of Reviving Ophelia I enjoyed this largely anecdotal book and did get some idea of this terrain and she makes interesting observations about how times have changed She found that the biggest change culturally between old and young was to her surprise the advent of psychology My favorite uote is I m not growing old I m growing whole Some of the chapters are sad elders preoccupied with loss At times I felt like the world the author inhabits most of her interviews were with people from the plains states particularly South Dakota and Nebraska was so different from mine that I just couldn t connect grandparents on farms going fishing life long marriages but in general I learned a lot

Another Country Navigating the Emotional Terrain of Our Elders summary æ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF To care for those who have always cared for them Psychologist and bestselling writer Mary Pipher maps out strategies that help bridge the gaps that separate us from our elders And with her inimitable combination of respect and realism she offers us new ways of supporting each other new ways of sharing our time our energy and our love. I read this book looking for some insight into communicating with my 87 year old mother It did give me a greater understanding of the extreme stresses of old old age and the lack of support for people in this stage of life because of the way society has evolved to undermine community However personality and family dynamics play their parts and the book would have been helpful had there been examples of such situations Perhaps I need to find a good therapistWorthwhile to read but the best audience for it would be young people when they are making life choices that take them away from their families and communities Pipher says staying can involve sacrifices but has great benefit for both or three generations A very good section about the relationships between grandparents and grandchildren does not apply to me I see that but I can t imagine having chosen to remain in an economically depressed less vibrant area at a less than satisfying job in my twenties because my mother would need attention decades in the future though perhaps it would be different for people who planned to have children Or perhaps I might have moved to a closer but still larger city Thinking of people my age who move to be near their children and find new communities there I hope that our generation will be flexible than our parents though I realize that this choice isn t available to everyone For me it remains a problem despite my increased understanding

Another Country Navigating the Emotional Terrain of Our Elders summary æ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF A New York Times Bestseller There are older people in America today than ever before They are our parents and grandparents our aunts and uncles and in laws They are living longer but in a culture that has come to worship youth a culture in which families have dispersed communities have broken down and older people are isolated Meanwhi. Although the author did include a lot of scattered information about how to better relate to the elderly I found her overall production less than satisfactoryThis was because she has created a strange mix of psychology with occasional psychobabble Eastern philosophy partial personal stories and emotive poetry to make her points She included a generous portion of sweeping generalizations as wellApparently she also felt that the hard scrabble life of farmers in the MidWest was pretty superior to today s unconnected and hurried existence She described it in a very romanticized way oftenShe also prescribed strong families as a solution to the woes of the elderly but that doesn t help those without strong families in today s unconnected world She declared that certain changes needed to be made in modern healthcare social systems etcbut there wasn t really anything there about HOW such changes would ever be actually accomplishedFinally she acknowledged that some people grew old badly usually due to past bitterness or current physical and mental disabilities but she spent most of her time praising those who ballroom danced their way to their inevitable final fall off the dance floor It s my own fault but each time she praised these admirable folks I was reminded of those who could not manage such positive steps A well balanced book would probably depress people further since many stories of aging and death do not end well at all
