The dynamics of family interaction, and how these change over time as families age is emphasized in this module. The concepts of social support systems and social networks are explained. Life transitions, such as divorce, re-marriage, blended families, widowhood all bring about significant changes, and it is important for professionals to understand the impact of such events on the health, social and financial well-being of seniors and boomers.
