ACAPcommunity (Adult Children of Aging Parents) was launched in 2012 as a community-based program in western North Carolina. The inaugural chapter, ACAP-Hickory, is located in Hickory, NC. ACAPcommunity provides a variety of services that offer information, resources, support and community for adult-children as we care for our aging parents and care for ourselves. Monthly educational programs, a validated curriculum presented by area experts, comprise the core of ACAPcommunity’s services. In addition to helping ACAPers learn to effectively care for parents, ACAPcommunity programs encourage adult-child caregivers to care for their own needs and prepare for their own aging. While focused on adult-child caregivers, ACAPcommunity programs are open to all who are interested.

Since beginning in the Hickory area, ACAPcommunity has grown tremendously, testimony to the significant need adult-children have for support during their journey with aging parents.  Read about the demographics of ACAP-Hickory participants and the program’s impact here.
