What Are California Caregiver Resource Centers?
The 11 nonprofit California Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs), serve family caregivers of adults (18+) affected by chronic and debilitating health conditions including dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebrovascular diseases (such as stroke or aneurysms), degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and multiple sclerosis, or traumatic brain injury (TBI), among many others.
Combined, the CRCs serve every county in California. Each CRC tailors its services to its geographic area, and each offers family caregivers a range of core programs from counseling and care planning, to legal/financial consulting and respite, at low to no cost.
The CRCs are united by shared values emphasizing choice, collaboration, innovation, quality, participation, respect & diversity.
