Supporting the older generation

Supporting the older generation

Narelle Pollock takes her mother-in-law, Betty, out of the Raeburn Rest Home in Cambridge for the day, in 2010. Many midlife adults support their elderly parents or parents-in-law in a practical way if they live close by. This includes activities like shopping trips and outings.
