SAN FRANCISCO—August 12, 2014—Family Caregiver Alliance offers an extensive online library of educational materials for caregivers. The organization announces the release of nine new additions to the comprehensive collection at www.caregiver.org

The materials offer families the kind of straightforward, practical help they need as they care for relatives with chronic or disabling health conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and brain trauma. Topics reflect the urgent concerns and challenges faced by the caregivers we work with every day. The new publications include information on caring for someone with incontinence; legal planning for incapacity; handling grief and loss; transitioning to life after caregiving; and more.

 New and recently updated additions to FCA’s comprehensive online library:
 

These publications, along with additional fact sheets, research reports, webinars, educational videos, and more, are all available free online on the recently redesigned FCA website. Many of the materials are available in multiple languages.

Founded in 1977, Family Caregiver Alliance was the first community-based nonprofit organization in the U.S. created to address the needs of caregivers. FCA and its National Center on Caregiving are now nationally and internationally recognized for pioneering programs—information, education, research and advocacy—that support and sustain the important work of families and friends caring for loved ones with chronic, disabling health conditions. Visit www.caregiver.org or call (800) 445-8106 for more information.

These publications were developed with a generous grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The funds received from SNF allowed Family Caregiver Alliance to refine our caregiver content, to implement a more user-friendly content management system, and to develop communication channels to better support family caregivers. With the generosity of grantors like the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, FCA is able to keep family caregivers educated, aware, and equipped with the tools and resources they need to care successfully for their loved ones.
