Education and Support

As family caregivers we need emotional support to buoy us up on hard days, to remind us (or teach us) that we are not crazy, that others feel the same way we do, to lessen the isolation and to make caregiving easier.

As family caregivers we need education to teach us how to do the various things that caregiving demands of us, how to advocate for our loved one (and ourselves), how to find good home care, how to financially plan for the future, where to find respite care, etc. etc. etc.

This section won’t answer all of your questions, or ease all of your concerns, but we know it will answer many of them. We know it is going to help.

NFCA has been publishing its newsletter TAKE CARE! for more than 10 years now. Click here to read articles both past and present and find answers to many of your questions, new ideas, and emotional support.

We’ve got lots of Tips that have already helped thousands of family caregivers and Guides as well on specific topics such as how to find support groups or respite care.

In addition, we have a series of Education Pages dealing with specific diseases, conditions and symptoms. Because NFCA is not expert in these areas we have invited companies and organizations to create these specific pages for us.

Our FAQ section is just that – suggestions on where to find answers to your most pressing issues

Our list of Resources will lead you in lots of directions to find more ways to solve your problems and meet your needs.

Ever been frustrated by your interactions with doctors or other healthcare professionals? Welcome to the club. We’ve all been there. So many of them don’t seem to understand how much information we have to offer, that we need advice and direction, and some support as well.

NFCA’s educational program, Communicating Effectively with Healthcare Professionals, is one way to help break down some of those barriers. It is designed as a three hour interactive class and that’s great for people who live in areas where there is a Communicating Effectively (CE) trainer. But many people don’t. That’s why we have included here some of the helpful information from the CE toolkit. Click here to learn how to report symptoms, understand the workings of your doctor’s office, and much, much more.
