ACAP (Adult Children of Aging Parents) provides information, resources, support and community for adult children as they care for their aging parents and for themselves. Local ACAP chapters offer free educational programs monthly. While we look forward to resuming in-person programs when safe to do so, during the Covid-19 pandemic, all programs are offered via Zoom and Facebook Live.

Although designed for adult children of aging parents, ACAP programs are open to all. ACAPcommunity is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
