Veränderungen der heutigen Gesellschaft den Merkmalen sozialer Netzwerke
gegenüberzustellen und daraus Folgen für die künftige Lebenspraxis abzuleiten. Durch
die Fülle von Aufgaben und Funktionen, die soziale Netzwerke übernehmen können,
werde ich in der Arbeit nur einen Schwerpunkt setzen können, der sich hauptsächlich
mit dem move von Unterstützungsleistungen der Sandwich-Generation an die alte
Generation unter Berücksichtigung der Familienbindungen befassen wird. Der
Schwerpunkt liegt dabei allerdings nicht in einer Ist-Analyse, sondern in dem Versuch
eine Prognose für die nächsten Jahrzehnte zu skizzieren. Die neuen veränderten
Rahmenbedingungen des Wandels werden dabei als Interventionsvariablen, die auf die
sozialen Unterstützungsnetzwerke einwirken und vermutlich in Zukunft noch stärker
einwirken werden, interpretiert.
Im ersten Teil wird vor allem die faktischen Gegebenheiten eingegangen und Statistiken, sowie Entwicklungen anhand von Prognosen beschrieben, um im zweiten Teil
der Arbeit dies dann mit den Merkmalen sozialer Unterstützungsnetzwerke in
Verbindung zu bringen. Dabei soll am Ende zu erkennen sein, inwiefern die sich
ändernden gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen auf die Grundstruktur der Netzwerke
auswirken und welche Folgen für die nächsten Generationen im Bezug auf Altenpflege
und –unterstützung entstehen können.
