The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the potential of elderly persons in managing their children’s households and in taking care of their grandchildren, as well as the roles of elderly people in connection with the migration processes of their children. Their role is analogous to the one which they assume when taking care of their grandchildren either at home or abroad, depending on who the emigrant is. Yet, in the case of reduced mobility, they become the recipients of such care themselves; most often in their country of origin. Do they receive sufficient care?
