Welcome to ACAP - the place to go for information and resources for adult-child caregivers and their aging parents.
Happy National Family Caregivers Month!
Caregiving for an aging parent is a wonderful way to say "thank you" to a parent, to give back and to care for her or him in a time of need. But caregiving can present challenges as well.
The mission of ACAP is to support adult-child caregivers as we care for our aging parents and for ourselves.
All ACAP products and services offer adult-child caregivers information, resources, support and community.
Through monthly programs ACAP provides opportunities for adult children to learn from healthcare professionals and others who have the experience and the resources to help, in informal group settings and workshops.
Our goal is to help adult-child caregivers provide the best quality of life for loved ones and for themselves!
Laughter is the Best Medicine!
Presented by Rich Duncan, Humorist and Adult-Child of Aging Parents
Most of us can use more laughter in our lives, particularly as caregivers! Research even confirms the importance of laughter, particularly during stressful times. ACAP's November program "Laughter is the Best Medicine" will offer family caregivers the opportunity to laugh - as well as learn!
