Family Caregiver Alliance

Family Caregiver Alliance is first and foremost a public voice for caregivers. Founded in the late 1970s, we were the first community-based nonprofit organization in the country to address the needs of families and friends providing long-term care for loved ones at home. We illuminate the caregivers' daily challenges to better the lives of caregivers nationally, provide them the assistance they need and deserve, and champion their cause through education, services, research and advocacy.


HelpGuide offers a balanced, compassionate view of mental health. Complete editorial autonomy gives us the freedom to provide the most relevant and effective information for our readers. Our mental health professionals and writers are able to offer an unbiased picture of mental and emotional health issues without the influence of advertisers.


Get resources, stories, and newsletters about taking care of someone with Medicare. If you're one of the nearly 66 million Americans caring for an aging, seriously  ill, or disabled family member or friend, we're here to help make your life a little easier.
