Caregiver Resource Center OC (CRC OC), a non-profit organization is a trusted partner for Orange County families coping with the physical, emotional, and financial responsibilities of caregiving.


Since 1988, the CRC OC has assisted thousands of families who care for a frail adult over age sixty or, care for an adult who has brain impairing conditions including: Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), traumatic brain injury, and Huntington’s disease.


Services include: Family Consultation, Assessment and Care Planning, Counseling, Support Groups, Respite, and Education.


In 2019, the California Department of Health Care Services awarded the eleven nonprofit Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs) $30 million for the Picking Up the Pace of Change: Scaling Services for a Changing Caregiver Profile project. The aim was to “expand and improve family caregiver services and enhance CRC information technology services” between 2019 and 2022. For an update on the project, see the full report.


Caregiver Resource Center OC, sponsored by St. Jude Medical Center, is part of a statewide system of Caregiver Resource Centers contracted through the California Department of Health Care Services. This project is funded in part through a grant from the California Department of Aging and a grant from the CARES Act (H.R. 748), as allocated by the Orange County Board of Supervisors and administered by the Office on Aging. Additional grant funding is provided by the California Department of Health Care Services. Services are provided free of charge. Voluntary contributions are gratefully accepted, and no one is denied for inability to contribute.
