Caregiver Resource Centers
Caring for a loved one with cognitive disorder or another disabling condition forever changes the lives of families and caregivers. There can be devastating effects on those providing long-term care: financial pressures, legal quandaries, health problems, and emotional turmoil. Fortunately, in California, there is help https://www.caregiver.org/californias-caregiver-resource-centers (CRCs), throughout the state serve thousands of families and caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, Parkinson’s disease and other disorders.
