Information, resources, support and community as we care for our aging parents and for ourselves
Caring for an aging parent is a wonderful way to say “thank you” to Mom and Dad. Accompanying our parents as they age can be a privilege and joy, but doing so sometimes brings challenges. The relationship between the aging parent and adult-child is like no other, and the dynamics between the two are filled with history, memories and emotions.
ACAPcommunity is a nationally-unique 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to support adult-child caregivers as we care for our aging parents and for ourselves. ACAPcommunity provides information, resources, support and community for those caring for a loved one. Although designed specifically for adult-children caring for aging parents, ACAPcommunity programs are open to all who are interested.
Whether you become involved with ACAPcommunity through this website and podcasts, or whether you attend monthly educational programs, we hope you will feel supported, comforted and guided as you care for your parents and for yourself. If we may ever be of help to you, please don’t hesitate to let us know by clicking here or on the Contact Us button above.
