Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In this contribut I studied and analyzed some best practices (good practices), active in Italy, for the support of the elderly and their carers, from an intergenerational perspective. Some synthesis points sinthesis: - the demographic question has important repercussions on the care burden of families, especially women. This charge is destined to increase in the coming years, due to the thinning of the family networks; - still today, a significant number of caregivers belong to the sandwich generation, which must watch, at the same time, their children as well as their elderly parents; - caring for older generations can mean more to families than just an experience, but also an enrichment of family relationships, the recognition of a common history, provided that it is possible to open a space of reflexivity that leads the recognition of a "relationship we"; - these circumstances highlight the value of all services that support caregivers in their commitment to family solidarity; - these services must, however, produce good relational practices, that is to say that they can not only meet the needs of the elderly and their caregivers, but also promote the reflexivity of the family, to allow the family networks to understand the meaning of care within empowering relationships.
