"I'm Holly Robinson Peete, host of Your Turn to Care. I'm here to welcome you to our website on caregiving."

Your Turn To Care is a multi-platform series produced by KCET that explores the emotional aspect of being a caregiver and how families are impacted. Viewers will have access to this valuable information in three ways: 1) in four half-hour television specials that will air nationally, 2) on the Your Turn To Care website with additional information designed just for the web and 3) on individual segments that will air monthly on KCET’s high-acclaimed weekly program, SoCal Connected.

Each of the four half-hour national television specials focuses on two or three different families who find themselves at an important juncture along the timeline of the caregiving journey. And while the stories for the national specials and SoCal Connected focus on the emotional impact of caregiving, the Your Turn To Care website offers families who are in need of solutions, resources and support.
