30 June 2020 - California
California Caregiver Resource Centers, a network of 11 nonprofits centers throughout California, have launched a new statewide website to share resources and support with family caregivers in the state. Made possible by a budget augmentation from the California Department of Health Care Services, the launch of caregivercalifornia.org will serve as an important resource for family caregivers throughout California.
With the new statewide website, caregivers can quickly identify the CRC that serves the area in which they live, and access important information about education, events, and advocacy opportunities.
The new website will also serve as a platform to feature various multimedia content from all across the state including livestreams, podcasts and blogs that highlight community outreach, caregiver support and public advocacy.
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.
California Caregiver Resource Centers (caregivercalifornia.org) serve family caregivers who are providing support for someone 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.
