IdahoPTV Airs "Caring for Your Parents" 
and Offers Toll-Free Call-in Lines 

- Airs Wednesday, April 2, at 9:00 p.m. MT/PT

- Live, confidential expertise offered on toll-free call-in line

Idaho Public Television will air the two-hour special "Caring for Your Parents" on Wednesday, April 2, at 9:00 p.m. MT/PT. The first 90 minutes of the documentary, which was written and produced by award-winning television journalist Michael Kirk, a former Idahoan, looks at the complexity of shifting caregiver roles. 

In the final 30 minutes of the show, medical correspondent Dr. Art Ulene leads a panel discussion that offers concrete advice and guidance on how to start the conversation about eldercare - often the most difficult step in caregiving.

Local experts on aging and trained AARP volunteers will take viewer calls throughout the two-hour program. These Idaho residents are familiar with in-state resources and how to best meet caregiving challenges. IdahoPTV will have more than 15 phone lines open to accept calls. Viewers can call toll-free to (800) 980-4788 for live, off-air and confidential advice, offered free of charge.

A link on the idhoptv.org Web site connects viewers with additional information and resources, including community resources and a caregiver's handbook.
