Tomorrow, Seattle will play host to an important forum focusing on the critical role of people caring for aging loved ones, many of whom are also juggling busy households and full-time jobs. Speakers at the Washington Post Live's "Caregiving in America" forum include a host of experts on aging, disability, health and human services and other topics, as well as Washington First Lady Trudi Inslee and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.

AARP is one of several sponsors for the event. Debra Whitman, AARP's Executive Vice President for Policy, Strategy and International Affairs, will deliver the opening remarks tomorrow. Debra joined Margaret to preview the forum and discuss the growing numbers of workers trying to balance (or keep) their busy jobs with the increasing demands of family and eldercare.

Among the topics they discussed:

AARP has included a Caregiving Resource Center on its website.
