The National Alliance for Caregiving Mission
In advancing our mission, NAC conducts research, does policy analysis, develops national best-practice programs, and works to increase public awareness of family caregiving issues. We recognize that family caregivers provide important societal and financial contributions toward maintaining the well-being of those in their care. In addition to national research and advocacy, NAC provides technical assistance to a national network of caregiving coalitions representing nearly 30 states and localities in the United States and serves as Founder and Secretariat for the International Alliance of Carer Organizations (IACO).
The National Alliance for Caregiving is a leader in conducting policy analysis and tracking legislation dealing with family caregiving issues – initiatives that focus on family caregivers or affect the care recipient in a way that would also affect the family caregiver. The need to support the nation’s nearly 53 million family caregivers and sustain them as the backbone of our chronic and long-term care system is a central issue in national and state efforts to reform healthcare.
