Some of us are able to look away from aging, illness, and suffering and others are not able to look away.
Mary Doherty, of Southbury, will share her experience caring for her aging family members for the past eleven years, and how family dynamics and individual personalities play a huge role.
One thing that fascinates her about her experience is that preexisting family dynamics determined much of what transpired, while at the same time what transpires alters family dynamics.
Mary Doherty grew up in Lynn, Massachusetts as did much of her extended family. She holds an undergraduate degree from Bowdoin College and a graduate degree from UNH.
