As the population ages, many adult children are grappling with an unprecedented social, cultural, economic, and personal revolution as they transition into the primary caregiver role for their aging parents. Caring for Your Parents is a moving film that draws much-needed attention to this universal reality, underscoring today's struggle to keep parents at home, tensions between siblings, and the complexity of shifting caregiver roles through an intimate look at five American families. In the end, the documentary contends successful caregiving requires one primary ingredient—love.

Caring for Your Parents is immediately followed by A Conversation About Caring, a 30-minute panel discussion led by former NBC medical correspondent Dr. Art Ulene. This instructive segment offers concrete advice and guidance on how to start the conversation—often the most difficult step in caregiving.

Bonus DVD features include: filmmaker Michael Kirk's interview with caregiving experts Hugh Delehanty and Elinor Ginzler, co-authors of the book Caring for your Parents: The Complete Family Guide; access to the Caring for Your Parents Web site, which includes downloadable resources such as The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource for Caring for Your Parents; a printable Conversation Booklet to help adult children begin a comfortable and healthy dialogue with their elderly parents; and closed captions.
