The Caregiver Community

Hosted ByFrances Hall

Navigating the frequently mysterious, sometimes frightening, and often humorous world of caregiving. If you are juggling the needs of spouses, children, step-children, pets, work, volunteer activities and parents and in-laws, this show is for you!

No matter where you live or work, the world’s population is rapidly aging. In the United States alone, there are nearly 60 million adults age 60 and older – 18 percent of the nation’s population. Globally, these numbers are projected to rise dramatically over the next 20 years. We are living longer – largely as a result of advances in healthcare – and this is wonderful news, of course! However, our aging population is also creating historically unique challenges to families, the workforce, our medical and health care systems, and our caregiving culture. Adult-child caregivers, the majority of whom are working-age adults are hit especially hard by these challenges.

Join Jane Everson and Frances Hall, two adult-child caregivers, along with their guests, as they attempt to navigate the frequently mysterious, sometimes frightening, and often humorous world of caregiving. If you are juggling the needs of spouses, children, step-children, pets, work, volunteer activities and parents and in-laws, this show is for you! Founded in 2009 by Frances Hall, ACAP is a thriving business, offering a variety of programs and services to support adult-child caregivers and families of aging parents. ACAP’s mission is “to support adult-child caregivers as we care for our aging parents and for ourselves.”
