History and Funding
The Caregiver Resource Center is one of 11 regional resource centers across
California that are designed to serve family caregivers of brain impaired
adults. This system was established under special legislation (Chapter
1658 Welfare and Institutional Code) and was signed into law in 1984.
The Caregiver Resource Center operates under the auspices of St. Jude
Medical Center and is funded through a grant from the California Department
of Health Care Services. The Caregiver Resource Center also receives funding
from the National Family Caregiver Support Program (part of the Older
Americans Act) through the Orange County Office on Aging.
