Abstract

Children of Aging Parents (CAPS) is a nonprofit, charitable organization whose mission is to assist the nation's nearly 54 million caregivers of the elderly or chronically ill with reliable information, referrals and support, and to heighten public awareness that the health of the family caregivers is essential to ensure quality care of the nation's growing elderly population. CAPS refers caregivers to appropriate groups anywhere in the US and encourages the formation of new, CAPS-affiliated groups, and offers an online support group to provide more immediate support.
