At Aging Is a Family Affair our goal is to champion the art of candid conversations across generations. Through storytelling, we highlight how the aging of America is creating the need for a new understanding about how we communicate and the choices we face in our growing, multi-generational society.
Here we invite people to dissolve difficulties with good communication. We model how to talk together openly, with kindness and respect; we endorse an allowance for personal and generational differences in frames of reference and values. We hope that your participation here will give rise to an increased understanding of your family, to an enhanced ability to positively resolve related challenges, and to more satisfying relationships with all those around you.
To support this goal, we share stories from a variety of individuals and families who have faced their own set of challenges and found success. Our changing society calls us to share what might otherwise remain private so that we may learn from each another and confront change with grace.
And so, we invite you to share your own personal or family story, and look forward to celebrating your success.
With Warm Regards,
Dr. Mary Ann Massey
