Casting Call: New Jersey Family Caregivers of Aging Parents

200px-Camera-video.svgI received a phone call this morning from a producer looking to cast family caregivers and their aging parents in an upcoming ad campaign.

The producer sent a follow-up email detailing what she needs; here's what she's looking for:

"My client wants to document the relationship between seniors and an adult child caregiver. To that end we are looking for seniors (75+) who are still living at home with the help of an adult child and/or children (50+). At this stage in our casting we are especially focused on ethnic diversity. We are also looking for two professional caregivers who provide in home care to seniors. All candidates must be New Jersey residents living in Monmouth, Middlesex, Union or Bergen County.

"Next week we will be making a 10- to 15-minute visit to each candidate to gather a quick picture of them and their home. These photographs will then be presented to the client who will select 14 people to be photographed for their advertising campaign.

"Each person who is selected for the shoot earns a fee of $1,000 for three to four hours of their time on one of our shoot dates (April 10, 11 or 12).."

If you're interested and meet the qualifications listed above, here's the contact information:

Call Rachel at 1-917-806-0675 before April 5, 2013 or submit a recent close up and full length photos of yourself and your parent to Be sure to include your full name, phone number, email address and home address.
