2.4.3 ACAP Talking Points

ACAP Mission

To provide information, resources, support, and community for adult-children as they care for their aging parents and for themselves

ACAP’s Uniqueness

  • 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.
