The National Alliance for Caregiving was created to conduct research, do policy analysis, develop national programs and increase public awareness of family caregiving issues. The Alliance’s mission is to be the objective national resource on family caregiving with the goal of improving the quality of life for families and care recipients. Established in 1996, NCA is a non-profit coalition of national organizations focusing on issues of family caregiving. Alliance members include grassroots organizations, professional associations, service organizations, disease-specific organizations, a government agency, and corporations.
The NCA Members link has links to all NCA member organizations. NCA in collaboration with Evercare, recently published The Evercare Study of Caregivers in Decline: A Close-up Look at the Health Risks of Caring for a Loved One concerning the health impact of caring for loved ones and findings that pervasive worrying and sleep deprivation lead caregivers to neglect their own health.
