Retirement Revolution: The New Reality
Family Caregiver Alliance is featured in the new PBS program, "Retirement Revolution: The New Reality" that premiered September 15, 2009 (check your local listings for an airdate in your community). Paula Zahn hosts this program which examines how millions of Americans have had to change their retirement plans in the wake of the 2008 financial meltdown. Retirement Revolution looks at the stories of everyday people who have found ways not only to survive but thrive in this new reality.
Kathleen Kelly, Executive Director provides an overview of financing for respite and other services and the segment on Respite for Caregivers features FCA's Camp for Caregiving—a program that provides a weekend away for the care recipients in a retreat setting and respite for their family caregivers.
