Familial
Relationships

In An Aging Family

Iris Mickel, BS Educ.

Administrator,
Prentis Federation Apts.

Relationships are forever
evolving and changing. With
each new role comes a cer-
tain amount of discomfort
and confusion. The parent-
child relationship is no excep-
tion. It changes throughout
life. When a family is young,
the parental role is to nurture,
support, discipline and pro-
mote the autonomy of the
child. When the parents
reach middle adulthood, the
task is to be productive
adults, contributing to the
world and caring about peo-
ple. Then, in late adulthood,
by choice or not by choice,
many important roles are
relinquished. While some ag-
ing parents are willing to ab-
dicate the power they once
had, some are not. It
becomes hard to get need-
ed decisions made. Conflicts
arise. In other instances, ag-
ing parents want to turn over
responsibilities but children
may prefer to retain their old
familiar roles as dependents.
Adjustments to role changes
take time.
Attitudes and perspectives
can be shifted with some
simple communication
techniques. Learn to listen to
what is being said. Be willing
to hear someone else's point
of view. Understand words
matter and make a dif-
ference, so, choose them
carefully. Develop new ap-
proaches whereby the
generations join together in
problem solving. Solutions
may be suggested that
might not have occurred
when searching alone. Good
books to read and discuss are
Helping Your Aging Parent by
James Halpern, M.D. ; The
Jewish Family Book by
Sharon Strassfeld and Kathy
Green; and You and Your Ag-
ing Parent by Helen
Kandel-Hyman.
Kibud av v'aym, giving
respect to one's parents and
helping to comfort them as
they age will in turn bring
comfort to one another.

Cancer Drug
Is Tested

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A drug
with a promising application
for cancer therapy developed
at the Weizmann Institute of
Science in Rehovot is
undergoing clinical tests at
medical centers in the
United States and Switzer-
land, the Weizmann In-
stitute reported.
Interleukin-6, or M-6, was
discovered and synthesized
at the institute, which de-
scribed it as "the most prom-
ising biotechnological pro-
duct to have originated in
Israel."
Tests on animals showed it
effective in preventing the
development of tumors with
a high rate of metastasis, or
spread.
It also stimulated the pro-
duction of blood platelets
and increased antibody pro-
duction in response to vac-
cination.
IL-6 has many possible
uses in cancer therapy, said
Professor Michael Revel,
head of the Weizmann In-
stitute's Department of Mo-
lecular Genetics and
Virology, who headed the
team that developed the
drug.
It can be used as an ad-
junct to chemotherapy and
as a broad immunostimulant
that helps the body
counteract inflammation, in-
fection and shock, Professor
Revel said.

Rightist Party
Gets Funds

Bonn (JTA) — The far-
right Republican Party,
headed by a former SS offi-
cer, has qualified for $1.5
million in public funds as a
result of its unexpectedly
strong showing in Ger-
many's regional elections
two weeks ago.
The announcement was
made by the Stuttgart-based
government office that
calculates the legally man-
dated allocations to political
parties based on their elec-
tion performance.
The Republicans polled
10.9 percent of the popular
vote in the federal state of
Baden-Wurtemberg, com-
pared to 3.2 percent in the
1990 elections for the
Bundestag.
The party, which had only
2,300 registered members
there before the elections,
compiled 538,866 votes to
become the third- largest po-
litical faction in the
southern German state,
which is one of Germany's
richest.
