PBS: Caring for Mom and Dad

“Caring for Mom and Dad” tells the important story of caregivers of dementia patients, and PBS does a god job raising the difficult questions caregivers face every day. The hour-long special covers the challenges adult children face caring for their aging parents, including raising young children, caring for dementia patients in their homes, and the frustrations and challenges of caregiver support. The episode calls for local communities to raise the bar to meet the challenges of family caregivers.
