The purpose of this project was to explore the writer's experience of being the head of household of a multigenerational family through a personal narrative. The writer identifies family history, values as well as cultural beliefs that have lead to her in taking on the role of provider and caregiver for her parents and children. Literature relevant to multigenerational families, intergenerational caregiving, caregiver functioning, and caregiver benefits and supports were reviewed. Other personal narratives were also reviewed as a means of guidance for the writer to construct her own narrative. The writer includes her experience in writing her personal narrative, as well as describes the implications her role as a multigenerational caregiver has on the field of social work.
