The site also serves as an online support network and resource destination for those seeking guidance and advice on caregiving, including the financial impact of caregiving, useful tools for seeking long-term and palliative care and how to cope with the passing of a loved one.

‘Topic-of-the-Week’ discussion boards are meant to encourage visitors of all ages to join the conversation and offer practical solutions to the countless issues caregivers regularly confront. In addition, the site features profiles on the caregivers, families and experts featured in the four-part television series, as well as updated news and information on caregiving.

“Challenges related to elder care touch so many people, yet countless families and individuals feel like they are facing these issues alone. Elder care support and services are critical to families more than ever before,” said Bret Marcus, chief content officer, KCET.

“KCET is committed to providing a comprehensive, online resource for on-demand expert information and a peer support network that allows individuals to share their experiences and obtain advice from those in similar situations.”

Your Turn To Care is syndicated by American Public Television and airing on public television stations across the country this summer. Check local listings.

Your Turn to Care is produced by KCET, based in Los Angeles, with executive producer Margaret Hussey, and Bret Marcus, KCET’s chief content officer. The multi-platform public television initiative is made possible by MetLife Foundation, California Community Foundation, The Lippey Family Trust, and Gladyce L. Foster.
