Abstract

While adult caregiving has recently received greater attention, parents who continue to provide care for an adult child with a developmental disability have been an omitted group of care providers. In this article, life review is discussed as an interventive technique which can aid these parents with their late life caregiving responsibility. Six practice principles are derived for using life review techniques with these parents. Using an ecological framework, four case examples are included that demonstrate how life review can assist these parents with stress associated with the caregiving role.
