Date:3/31/2008

f information through multiple mediums and the new book, TV program and Web site satisfy that need. This is a unique opportunity for us to create and deliver thoughtful, engaging, high quality content for people age 50+."

The newly updated Caring for Your Parents book, co-authored by Editor-in-Chief of AARP Publications Hugh Delehanty and AARP's Senior Vice President for Livable Communities Elinor Ginzler, guides readers through new, creative approaches to caregiving that can turn familial duty into journeys of emotional development and reconciliation. It documents the inventive ways in which an increasingly broad segment of American society is addressing and resolving critical issues. Peppering the book is practical advice from the experts at AARP and their field-tested recommendations advise readers on how to locate quality health care, file for Medicare, sidestep consumer scams, and plan the disposition of an estate.

The Caring for Your Parents book will also provide readers with everything from tips on design adjustments that will make your parents' house easier to get around in, to navigating the hidden dangers of assisted living. Plus, a resource guide in each chapter lists help lines, Web sites and consumer action groups, while success stories profile the innovative arrangements that relatives, community members, and caregivers have adopted to bridge the gaps in the U.S. health-care system.

Additionally, AARP teamed up with WGBH public broadcasting to develop a new primetime television special on caregiving. The result, titled Caring for Your Parents, is a two-hour special that draws much-needed attention to this emotional and universal reality. Comprised of a 90-minute documentary followed by a 30-minute panel discussion, the broadcast event premieres nationally on PBS Wednesday, April 2, at 9:00 p.m. ET (check local listings). The television program, and AARP's relationship with WGBH, brings the content of AARP's book to life, off
