We also talk about our personal experiences as adult child caregivers - what we need to know in order to be balanced and informed caregivers, what we are learning from our journey with our parents about aging and about ourselves, and advice we wish someone had told us when we began our journeys. If you are juggling the needs of spouses, children, step-children, pets, work, and volunteer activities with the needs of parents and in-laws, this show is for you!
