The Family Caregiver Alliance is a great resource if you’re one of the 42 million personal caregivers across the U.S. Whether you need information on caring for someone with dementia, resources for advance care planning, or patient advocacy, the FCA website can help you. According to the FCA website, “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.” You can find free webinars and videos in the FCA Learning Center.
