Strained Family Relationships

Strained family relationships create stress and frustration and may lead to abuse of elderly people. The need for financial support from family members either supporting the elderly family member in the nursing home, or assisting them in a home-living arrangement can cause stress on the caregiver and on the elderly person. Financial family planning, access to nursing care facilities, and strong community support systems may reduce these stresses.
