Family & Friends: Each family is unique, coming with its own consellation of generations, relationships, and histories. In some families there is an abundance of welcome and available asistance such that lives are well supported and healthy. In other families, physical historical or emotional distance may have limited what is available. There is no "one size fits all' when it comes to family and friends, and we encourage you to think about who you know and associate with, who does what well, and from whom you like or would like to receive guidance and/or support.
