Good afternoon,

This is a stressful and uncertain time, doubly so for those who serve as caregivers to others. We want to let you know that we’re here to help the spouses, partners, adult children and friends who are caring for your adult patients/clients with chronic health conditions.

Family Caregiver Alliance is a non-profit that has, for more than 40 years, provided quality information, support and resources to family caregivers of adult loved ones with chronic or disabling health conditions. We provide support services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area's 6 counties and provide information to caregivers nationwide. 

If your organization is seeking free or low-cost resources for your patients' family and friend caregivers, please keep us in mind. We accept referrals by phone, fax, email and through our website .

We look forward to helping you and the families you serve.

Thank you,

Christina Irving, LCSW
Client Services Director

How we meet caregivers' needs
We partner with organizations like yours to provide family caregivers with resources, tools and 1:1 assistance tailored to their specific caregiving needs, including:
What we offer
All services are currently conducted virtually — our staff is available to meet with caregivers via phone or 2-way video conferencing/chat.

Our services include :

  • Assessment – Our trained staff gathers information about the caregiver’s situation, including their physical and emotional health, capacity/functional level of care recipient, and access to resources & support systems. 

  • Care planning – We create a comprehensive action plan addressing the current and future needs of the family and care recipient, including expert information and interventions to improve family functioning.

  • High quality education programs – Articles, webinars and other resources teach caregivers stress-reduction and wellness techniques, build their direct care skills, and educate them on chronic conditions and care planning.

  • Referrals to community programs such as adult day care, support groups, counseling, home care, legal/financial consultation and respite services.

Resources at the ready (free & on demand)
