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.
