Millennials (people born between 1980 and 1996) comprise 24 percent of family caregivers. In May 2018, the AARP Public Policy Institute published the first report ever to take a comprehensive look at this generation, within the context of caregiving. Post-publication, AARP hosted a series of salon dinners to discuss caregiving with Millennial influencers and thought leaders. This webinar offers a closer look at Millennial caregivers and an opportunity to learn more about Millennials’ experiences with family caregiving.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe the experiences and challenges faced by Millennial family caregivers;
  • Discuss AARP’s research as it relates to Millennials and caregiving; and
  • Describe the caregiving experiences of Millennial influencers and the role caregiving plays in their lives.
