Good morning,

Welcome to National Family Caregivers Month! Yesterday you should have received our general e-blast celebrating this observance and providing resources and information for caregivers.

This is a follow-up to providers like yourself who count family caregivers among your patients and clients. If you serve diverse family caregivers—those who are young, or from ethnically diverse cultures, or are members of the LGBTQ+ community—then we invite you to join us in our theme this year of “Supporting a Diversity of Family Caregivers!”

According to NAC/AARP’s landmark 2020 Caregiving in the U.S. report, family caregivers are facing mounting challenges and need support. The report dove deep into their experiences, and provided profiles of specific demographics, including caregivers from diverse and under-represented communities. Scroll halfway down this page to view and access profiles of "typical" caregivers who are:

  • African American
  • Asian
  • Hispanic
  • LGBTQ+
  • Gen X
  • Millennial
  • Students

As an advocate and direct services provider for family caregivers in the multicultural SF Bay Area, we have developed an abundance of resources for diverse caregivers. Please check out our National Family Caregivers Month page to learn more and bookmark resources to pass along to your clients or patients.

On that page, you’ll find:

  • Links to new sections on our website where family caregivers who speak Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog and Vietnamese can navigate our site in their preferred language and find information, classes and resources.

  • Links to dozens of translated materials on a variety of caregiving topics in Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog and Vietnamese.

  • A range of resources for LGBTQ+ family caregivers.

  • Provider-specific links and tools to help you connect your caregiver clients and patients with relevant, valuable resources. 

In addition to the information and resources above, please check out our upcoming classes and events below.

Thank you for all you do to help and support our communities’ caregivers and their care recipients. And happy National Family Caregivers Month!

Thank you,

Family Caregiver Alliance
