Many of my clients are elderly with baby-boomer children. The children fear for the parents’ safety; the parents resent the interference of the kids. As a healthcare advocate, I often find that I am coaching both generations to appreciate that there is a balance between remaining independent and staying safe.
The movie That Evening Sun dramatizes this tug and pull. I’m a huge fan of Hal Holbrook and the late Dixie Carter, who play the main characters in this story. I really enjoyed That Evening Sun — maybe you will too.
