Dementia Caregivers In Appalachia On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, a group at the Center for Gerontology at Virginia Tech is researching extended family members who become dementia caregivers throughout central Appalachia. They want to understand how those caregivers moved into that role.

For his series “Getting Into Their Reality: Caring For Aging Parents,” News Director Eric Douglas talks with Project Coordinator Brandy McCann to find out what they are looking for.

Also, in this show, The Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, is a public radio program that reports on environmental issues in the region. We listen to their latest story.

West Virginia Morning is a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting which is solely responsible for its content.

Eric Douglas is our news director. Caroline MacGregor is our assistant news director and producer.
