    Watch out! Seniors with Dysfunctional Families

    in Caregiving

     


    When adult children with aging loved ones start working the family on planning for the future they comment, “On, this will be interesting because my family does not get along”.  This is a red flag that this family maybe dealing with dysfunction from their earlier years.  There may have been the presence of alcohol, emotional distance, unclear boundaries and a lack of communication.  As a friend explained her childhood, “It was like walking on eggshells.”


    A functional family can more easily address the decline of their parent because they were raised to solve problems a group.  They communicate well, that does not mean they can place their parent in an assisted living without emotions.


    This radio segment will delve into the traits of functional and dysfunctional families along with solutions for families caring for their senior.

    Today’s Discussion: All in the Family: Secret Lives, Deceit and Lies!


    What skeletons hide in your family closet?  Those things that we don’t want  others to know, sometimes even our own family members because we’re ashamed, embarrassed and disgusted by the actions and deeds that have occurred in our past from people in our generational blood line or even from the mistakes that we have made when we were young and foolish.  What do we do? Should we talk about it, remain silent or act like it never happened?

    Families Mean Business

    in Business

    Family businesses are the backbone of many world economies. In the US, family businesses employ nearly 63% of the workforce and contribute 57% of GDP. They are also responsible for nearly 78% of new job creation. It is highly likely that many people listening may be part of a family business or will be working for a family enterprise of some description. There are some good reasons why they contribute so much and that creates special conditions, challenges and characteristics which makes mediation very effective in ensuring the ‘specialness’ is not consumed by disputes. In this program, Amanda Bucklow will discuss what that specialness is, how to identify the early warning signs for emerging problems and what you can do about them, wherever you are in the ‘business’.


    Amanda Bucklow has been in full-time practice as a commercial mediator since 1995 and has specialised in negotiation and conflict resolution for most of her working life. She has worked in three family businesses including her own. Amanda is also an educator and entrepreneur - those two roles mean that she is constantly pushing the boundaries on how mediators are taught their skills so that they are able to practice in the real world as a ‘safe pair of hands’. Her active practice as a mediator feeds the development of her teaching and vice versa.
