Defining the Caregiving Coalition

A caregiving coalition is a community of representatives that has come together to address the needs of family caregivers across the lifespan. These coalitions support family caregivers, both families of origin(s) or families of choice(s), with information and referral services, educational outreach and advocacy. A caregiving coalition presents a united voice working to meet the complex social, medical, physical, financial, spiritual, and emotional needs of family caregivers.

NAC offers resources and technical assistance to help state and local communities grow and sustain caregiving coalitions.

Developing a Unified Strategy to Support Family Caregivers

NAC’s 2019 Annual Conference of Caregiver Advocates convened to explore the need for a unified strategy to address family caregiving as a public health issue. NAC builds upon that work by convening advocates to share resources and collaborate on the implementation of key policy recommendations that are aligned with global, national and state priorities impacting family caregivers across the lifespan.
