Abstract

In a study investigating intergenerational conflict between adult children and their hospitalized, chronically ill elderly parents, data on present and future conflict, areas of conflict, and presence of negative feelings were collected from both generations. Adult children and their parents report the presence of both types of conflict as well as negative feelings. However, some marked differences of perception between the generations for the variables under study were found. The older generation cite much less conflict. These findings as well as implications for practice are discussed.
