FCA has helped countless families in a number of different ways over the years, providing various resources and assistance to those offering disability care. Most recently, the FCA has developed the Family Care Navigator, which is a state by state resource for caregivers of those with disabilities.
At the Family Care Alliance website, the Family Care Navigator is easily accessible. A caregiver searching for information on government, nonprofit or private programs need only click on the state of residence right on the home page. If it is services that are needed, that information is also available on the Family Care Navigator.
General information and resources are also available. A list of some of the most common questions is prominently displayed for easy access. For further research and information, check the free fact sheets and publications Family Care Alliance displays on the website. Printable versions are available.
Because providing long-term care in a family caregiver situation can sometimes be difficult, frustrating or otherwise straining, there is also access to support groups and organizations for long-term family caregivers from the FCA website.
Family Caregiver Alliance has received various awards and grants. The organization's website is extensive and has been called an invaluable resource for long-term caregivers of adults with disabilities.
