About Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA)

Printer-friendly version

The mission of Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA) is to improve the quality of life for family caregivers and the people who receive their care. For over 40 years, FCA has provided services to family caregivers of adults with physical and cognitive impairments, such as Parkinson’s, stroke, Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Our services include assessment, care planning, direct care skills, wellness programs, respite services, and legal/financial consultation vouchers. Ongoing support is available with FCA, also now on a digital service platform. FCA is a longtime advocate for caregivers in the areas of policy, health and social system development, research, and public awareness, on the state, national and international levels.

The services, education programs, and resources from FCA are designed with caregivers’ needs in mind and offer support, tailored information, and tools to manage the complex demands of caregiving.

These include:

FCA CareJourney is a secure online solution for quality information, support, and resources for family caregivers.
Family Care Navigator, sponsored by the NCC, helps caregivers locate support services state-by-state.
National Center on Caregiving (NCC) unites research, policy, and practice to advance the development of high-quality, cost-effective programs and policies for caregivers in every state.
Bay Area Caregiver Resource Center is the CRC for the six-county San Francisco Bay Area, operated by FCA. Our Family Consultants work closely with families caring for ill or elderly loved ones.
