2.4.3 ACAP Talking Points
To provide information, resources, support, and community for adult-children as they care for their aging parents and for themselves
- ACAP’s focus is on adult children of aging parents, although programs are open to all.
- While support and community are important offerings of ACAP, at the core, ACAP is an educational program.
- A nationally-validated and copyrighted Curriculum provides the framework for ACAP programs.
- Chapter programs are offered 12 months each year, helping build community and reduce isolation.
- Because so many caregivers do not consider themselves as a caregiver, the term “Caregiver” is not in our name.
- There are multiple avenues of support, including in-person programs, videos, podcasts, local conferences, national/international symposia, and other resources.
- Chapters are led by a cadre of local volunteers.
- ACAP is collaborative, offering a collective impact model for a community.
