I am looking for information about the best ways to deal with family role reversals caused by illness. The example (this has not happened to me) A diabetic parent is the ill person in the family. Life revolves around them. Then a child is diagnosed or a spouse becomes ill and the family dynamic changes a great deal. Now instead of the former ill person being the focus, the new ill person becomes the focus.
Has anyone identified resources to help the former focus of the families attention cope with such a big swing in attention? Books, pamphlets, web sites that help the transition?..........rick
