AARP Caregiving Forum Round-up

Earlier this week, I watched AARP’s forum, The Challenges of Family Caregiving: What Needs to be Done? via webcast. Sitting in front of my computer in Arizona, I watched the speakers discuss their caregiving experiences and their recommendations for program and policy improvements to support more than 40 million family caregivers in the U.S. The 10 speakers were authors of books about caregiving and experts in their fields, but first and foremost, they are – or have been – family caregivers themselves. That’s why their comments resonated so much for me.

If you missed the live event, you can still watch an archived webcast of the forum online!  Or, if you just want a quick summary, here are the key points that the presenters made:

Watch the webcast and let me know what points resonated for you – I’d love to hear your thoughts!
