Caregiving Tips /

This week I had the pleasure of being a part of Washington Post Live and AARP's Caregiving in America Summit.  The program included panels on:  The emotional and financial toll of caregiving; Better support for caregivers; Resources, support networks, and solutions for caregivers; and an enlightening interview with Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois.  I closed the event with a keynote and discussion about my personal journey through taking care of an aging parent and the preparation and family conversation that all Americans should be having.  Thanks to the Washington Post Live, you can see all the event videos here: Washington Post Live Caregiving in America Videos
