The Younger Caregiver: Home, Work & Caregiving

This podcast addresses issues specific to 20, 30, and early 40-year-olds who are primary caregivers for their parents or grandparents or are trying to learn strategies and resources to help their parents care for their parents. Balancing home, work and caregiving can be particularly challenging for younger caregivers who may be at the beginning of their careers and have children still at home.

In this episode, host Frances Hall, Founder and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity, Adult Children of Aging Parents welcomes Mary Mitchell – Family Caregiver Support Specialist, Western Piedmont Council of Governments Area Agency on Aging, and AJ Kerley – Director of Professional Relations, PACE @ Home, Hickory, NC.

This episode of The Caregiver Community is made possible by our sponsor, Pace @ Home in Hickory, NC.

While providing care for her mother, Frances S. Hall, Founder and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity began ACAP as a monthly educational support program for fellow faculty and staff on a small NC university campus, then transitioned the program into a nationally-unique, community-impact nonprofit model in 2012. With a master’s degree in higher education administration and a 30+-year career in higher education and nonprofits, Frances continues to lead the growing organization as it continues to provide information, resources support, and community for adult children and others who care for older loved ones.
