`You and Your Aging Parent' Tells
the Pitfalls and Benefits of Old Age

A Review

By JENNIE KENT

"You and Your Aging
Parent," by Barbara Sil-
verstone and Helen Kandel
Hyman (Pantheon Books),
is a useful guide for people
who may be caught up in an
"emotional tug of war"

between feelings and rea-
sonable solutions to real
problems occuring during
the aging process. Parents
and children will appreciate
the first part, Taking Stock,
which points up both sides
of the parent-child relation-
ships and pitfalls, in which

invites you to view

The new GGG fall and

The cut of the new GGG suits
is definitely European ... with
its characteristic suppressed
waist and refined shoulder
treatment. The fabrics are also
richly continental. The feel;
however, is unmistakably
American . . . easy, casual,
comfortable. Please come in
and see our entire fall and
winter GGG collection. It's
your kind of clothing.

so many people find
themselves.
The guilt-complex syn-
drome is explained and
described so that the first
part of the book is effective
and enables the reader to
identify with personal prob-
lems, in order to recognize
and deal with these... for
themselves. -
The second part of the
book, Taking Action, points
to the negative aspects, as
well as the positive aspects,
which gives the reader an
attitudinal avenue: to take a
stand 'in dealing with criti-
cal problems, determining
the degrees of aid necessary
to come to a solution.
Statistics are quoted that
most men and women over
65 are healthy enough to
carry on normal activities;
15 percent are not; 5 per-
cent are in homes for aged
or nursing homes.

The aging process can be
a pleasure and comfort and
a time for looking back and
looking ahead, say the
authors. Many illnesses are
curable, though this time of
life is a "high risk period"
because of the cellular and
tissue changes that are tak-
ing place.
Interwoven with emo-
tional, social, and financial
problems, this stage
requires concern, com-
passion, and constructive
support. The American
Society's older generation in
most cases depends on
expert care and agencies,
while other countries may
care for those that cared for
them. If one has a good atti,
tude about aging and can
communicate. it is possible
to have an open and
accepted relationship
between children and
elderly parents.
There is an interesting
chapter directed to children
as to when to say "yes" and
when to say "no". The
details involved point up to
"unreasonable demands,"
unnecessary burdens to an
entire family life, when
demands will make the
elderly grow old pre-
maturely and what to eval-
uate in making the aging
process a constructive, sup-
portive aid to the parent.
(This may sound -like the
reversal role of parent-
child).
Yes, aging parents are
sometimes to be told that
"the idea will not work, let's
figure another way." A
"no" may be a blessing to
. both parent and child, and a
preparation for the day
when your parents cannot
live independently. Think
ahead with preventive care.
Talk about it to each other.
Young and old have dis-
abilities, and the authors
suggest: "Feel lucky you're
holding up with your dis-
ability and...believe it too."
Root yourself in the commu-
nity and plan earlier in life
for retirement, keeping a

good attitude about age and
death.

Changes must take place.
Environment and role
changes are sometimes nec-
essary. Work towards car-
ing for the elderly in our
society, supplying public
transportation, eliminate
high steps on buses, easy
stairs, marketing facilities,
housing, apartments, hand
rails in bathrooms, safe
kitchen appliances.
"There's hardly a product
on TV for elderly, except
Geritol, and even that
appeals to a younger, more
affluent buying public."
"You and Your Aging
Parent" can serve as an
inspiration for a good senior
citizens program, which will
give self-esteem and worth-
whileness to our society.

TELAVIV (JTA)—For-
eign Minister Moshe Dayan
said that the support of U.S.
Jewry was one of the four
factors that will enable
Israel to maneuver and
negotiate at the Geneva
conference.
The other factors were
that Israel is in possession
of the occupied territories
and can continue to hold
them; the possibility of co-
existence with the Arabs;
and the strength of the
Israeli army.

How can you expect your
youngsters to get an educa-
tion in college if they can't
find a place to park their
cars.

He who gives alms in se-
cret is greater than Moses.
