Home Care Decisions Bring Out Family Dynamics

Home care decisions bring out family dynamics in the best and worst ways.
     Home care decisions and family dynamics can become matches and gasoline if not acknowledged and addressed.  The gasoline, being the family dynamic, goes quickly from liquid to fire when the match is added.  The metaphor might sound overly dramatic, but the point is, families facing a crisis over an aging parent, can become families at war.
