'She Just Wanted to Dance Again': Navigate the Exchange of Parent-Caregiving Relationships Through Example, Advice
Date:6/16/2009

PORT ORANGE, Fla., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Suddenly it happens, with the excruciating impact of a blow with a two-by-four. We find ourselves needing to parent our parents.

Author Cheryl Jenkins, in her new book, "She Just Wanted to Dance Again," (published by iUniverse), encounters the inevitable aging and role-reversal process. Drawing on her own experience becoming caretaker for her mother, "She Just Wanted to Dance Again" outlines the phases of emotional upheaval when the parent-child relationship begins to change: The sense of loss, phases of sadness, compassion, anger, resentment, fear, aggravation and impatience -- by the child as well as the parent. Adult children may be torn between their sense of duty and responsibility, society's expectations and norms and the parent's desire to not "become a burden." And all the while navigating a complicated journey through a caregiving system that is frustrating, costly and inefficient.

In her two-part exploration, Jenkins shows that caretaking isn't an exact science, but that it also does not need to be so overwhelming that it consumes and tears apart our daily lives and relationships. Part one outlines Jenkins' personal story, and part two includes practical guidance, ideas and recommendations for others starting on a similar path. "She Just Wanted to Dance Again" will also pass knowledge on to others to share with a new generation so when it's time to take care of us, our children will have the practical and emotional resources to do so.
