In 250-300 words, given what you know about the members of the family, analyze and comment on the potential effects this condition/illness might have on them. Select two individuals from different generations and analyze the similarities and differences in their perspectives on this condition from the lens of their stage of life and development. Explain the kinds of emotional and/or behavioral changes that might be expected. How might the various family members react to them?
Support your claims with research from at least one scholarly source beyond your textbook.Guided Response: Read several of your classmates’ posts and respond to two of your peers. Examine the possible effects in social relationships and emotional health of the patient and his family members your classmates described. Did your classmates select the same generation as you did? Were the perspectives of the individuals that they selected and discussed different due to their perspectives or the stage of life of the family member? What insights or perspectives did you gain from your classmates’ posts?
