Critical Family Caregiving Issues the Focus of
Three New FCA Reports
SAN FRANCISCO— September 12, 2003—The National Center on Caregiving at Family Caregiver Alliance has released three new monographs on significant family caregiving issues:
The monographs are part of a series of reports from FCA’s National Center on Caregiving (NCC) on critical issues in long-term care. According to NCC Deputy Director Lynn Friss Feinberg, “The monographs document current trends and focus attention on the wide-ranging effects of long-term caregiving on public policy, social policy, public health and families’ personal well being.”
Previously issued NCC monographs include:
The monographs are available at no charge on the FCA website, www.caregiver.org. Printed versions are available for $35 each from FCA Publication Orders, 180 Montgomery St., Ste. 1100, San Francisco, CA 94104.
The monographs are funded by the Archstone Foundation, a private grantmaking organization whose mission is to contribute toward the preparation of society in meeting the needs of an aging population. Their resources are used to help all generations plan for the aging process and support programs addressing the needs of the elderly in three areas: healthy aging and independence; quality of life within institutional settings; and issues at the end of life.
