AARP'S New Book Caring for Your Parents, Online Channel, and PBS TV Special Launch to Provide Consumers With Integrated Resources for Caregiving
Date:3/31/2008

ering an insightful and useful look into a complex topic that is extremely relevant and important to AARP, our members and their families.

The first 90-minutes of Caring for Your Parents underscores today's struggle to keep parents at home, tension between siblings, and the complexity of shifting caregiver roles through an intimate look at five American families. Immediately after the 90-minute documentary, medical correspondent Dr. Art Ulene leads A Conversation About Caring. This half-hour panel discussion, taped at last year's AARP's Life@50+ National Event & Expo in Boston, Massachusetts, offers concrete advice and guidance on how to start the conversation -- often the most difficult step in caregiving. The panel of experts includes AARP Publications Editor-in-Chief and co-author of Caring for Your Parents: The Complete AARP Guide Hugh Delehanty; Newsweek columnist Jane Bryant Quinn; best-selling author of Passages Gail Sheehy; renowned physician and AARP Board member Dr. Cora Christian; and leading eldercare expert Dr. Bill Thomas.

In addition to the PBS special and AARP book, AARP.org has launched an updated Web channel devoted to caregiving. For more information on caregiving resources and to preview the upcoming program, visit http://www.aarp.org/caregiving.
