Episode Description:

Caregiving is a core life skill that tends to be neglected until it’s too late. This season’s opening episode of At Home, On Air will feature Bob Stephen, AARP’s VP Caregiving and Health. We’ll hear about his own experience with family caregiving as well as the challenges and opportunities across the arc of a caregiver’s journey, navigating the path from independence to dependence. Our conversation will highlight the drivers behind the increasing need for caregiving, the effects of the pandemic on caregiver activities, and the balance between technological and social solutions. We’ll also discuss ways family caregivers can prepare for the journey before needs arise.
