|An award-winning TV production company is developing a program for a cable network about the impact of aging. More and more Americans are faced with the difficult task of providing financial and personal support to elderly loved ones, and many are bringing them into their homes for personal and financial reasons. Caring for aging parents can be an enriching experience, but also emotionally, financially, and physically taxing. Do you have a story to share? This is a timely and relevant topic--let your voice be heard.
DO YOU FIT THE FOLLOWING?
• ARE YOU CURRENTLY CARING FOR ELDERLY PARENT(S) IN YOUR HOME OR WILL YOU BE MOVING THEM IN WITH YOU DURING JULY?
• DOES THE PERSON YOU CARE FOR (PARENT OR GRANDPARENT) HAVE DEMENTIA OR ALZHEIMER’S?
• DO YOU HAVE KIDS WHO LIVE AT HOME?
• IS IT DIFFICULT TO JUGGLE A CAREER, FAMILY AND THE NEEDS OF YOUR AGING LOVED ONE(S)?
