As appeared in USA Today and CBS News. In an article about how battles and rivalries often resurface when a parent’s health declines, Dr. Gazelle is quoted: “Gazelle advises siblings to stay focused on what their parent would want, and to remember that their relationships with siblings will endure long after their parents’ deaths.” She also notes that in some cultures, the parents may favor the eldest son. “No matter how bad the parent’s relationship has been with that son and how derelict he has been in his caregiving duties, he may be deferred to in decision-making in those families,” Gazelle said, “much to the chagrin of the daughters who’ve been giving care for years.”
