What do Feuding families do at the end of life?
When a family member is facing death and dying dysfunctional families have flawed conversations. Often they do not communicate at all or engage in destructive banter. They see one another as enemies. They demonize one another.
Feuding families are what I call dysfunctional families. They blame each other instead of locking arms in a crisis.
They sabotage resolution.
They actively compound already difficult decisions with intractable, interpersonal conflict. They create problems independent of the underlying issues.
Facing Fractured Communication
What are some of the struggles that these aging dysfunctional families with fractured communication can face?
Aging parents who lack the capacity to make decisions have no advance directives, DPOA and a
health-care proxy, and adult siblings, who must make end of life decisions, can’t agree
Withdrawal of life support with no designated health care agent and adult children and/or spouse disagree
Pain management adult children and/or and spouse disagree.
Answer to Fractured Family at End of Life – Mediation.
Mediation is a tool that can be a good resource for dysfunctional families at the end of life. It can help with these difficult families face the death of a parent without fracturing the entire family. It can allow an older person to die without pain inflicted by their own family.
