In Maine, 2018, Groves Conference gathered voices from family science and other social sciences, the arts, and history to address the giving and receiving of care within the circle of family life. In this volume, contributors highlight individual, family, and social influences that afford or deter successful family caregiving. Implications from this body of work and thought are derived and offered to lay person, teacher, program developer, researcher, and public policy maker alike.
