About The Shape of Care: A Podcast about Caregiving

Nearly 35 million Americans are taking care of aging spouses, parents or family members. Finding or providing care has become an all-consuming struggle. The Shape of Care podcast helps listeners find connection and support, as well as receive critical information that can inform caregiving decisions.

We feature guests who are grappling with the challenges of caring for loved ones as they decline. They talk about the joys of caregiving, as well as the financial and emotional toll this work takes. Our guests also include care workers who share stories about the essential work they do for frail elders, made more difficult because of the pandemic.

We explore innovative employer-based programs for paid workers who also have caregiving demands. We illuminate the work of care work scholars and policymakers. And we explore policy ideas, made more prescient now because of the new administration’s sweeping proposal to address issues of care across generations, from pre-school to childcare to elder care policy.
