Established in 2001 as a program of Family Caregiver Alliance, the National Center on Caregiving (NCC) works to advance the development of high-quality, cost-effective policies and programs for caregivers in every state in the country. Uniting research, public policy and services, the NCC serves as a central source of information on caregiving and long-term care issues for policy makers, service providers, media, funders and family caregivers throughout the country.
NCC services include:
Family Care Navigator: a first-of-its-kind, state-by-state, online guide to help families in all 50 states locate government, nonprofit, and private caregiver support programs. The easy-to-use Navigator lists programs for family caregivers as well as resources for older or disabled adults living at home or in a residential facility.
It also includes information on government health and disability programs, legal resources, living arrangements, disease-specific organizations, FAQs, a glossary and more. There is no charge to use the Navigator.
Caregiver Alerts/State & National Policy Initiatives: the NCC tracks state and national legislation of importance to policymakers, legislators, advocates, researchers, caregivers, providers and the disability and aging communities.
Caregiver Information & Assistance: personalized help to identify local resources and services for families, caregivers and providers nationwide, as well as publications on a wide array of topics. For information, e-mail [email protected].
Research & Publications: NCC public policy briefs, Fact Sheets, monographs and research studies document current issues, caregiver needs, services and Best Practices. Our electronic newsletter, Caregiving PolicyDigest, highlights legislation, research, policy changes, events and new program developments.
