Editorial Reviews

What happens when a family decides it would be better to care for their aging parents themselves rather than relying on a nursing home? An estimated 50 million Americans have chosen to do so, but with variables ranging from second marriages and longer life spans to an increase in dementia-related illnesses, families are finding that caring for one's parents at home poses new issues that previous generations did not face. ''Primetime'' explores the emotionally-wrenching process of taking care of one's own parents, through cameras installed in one family's home.

We take viewers into the harsh reality of one family's struggle as a husband and his new wife take on caring for his aging mom. The hour captures thousands of hours of videotape in the couple's home to chronicle their day-to-day life. Emotions run high as they find themselves dealing with guilt, fear, jealousy and conflicts which strain the marriage and impact the care of the aging mother.

This family is not alone, statistics show people who care for their elderly parents are more prone to depression, anxiety and health problems. Stress-related illnesses can take as much as 10 years off a family caregiver's life. What can a family do to take care of their parent and avoid falling into the common pitfalls? This eye-opening hour will spark conversation between generations before it's time to decide.
