SF Bay Area Services for Family Caregivers

For residents of the six county San Francisco Bay Area [Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara], FCA serves as a point of entry to specialized caregiver services. We work with families caring for someone with an adult-onset brain impairment such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, Parkinson's, MS, ALS, Huntington's disease, TBI, AIDS dementia and brain tumor, regardless of the care recipient's age. They also assist family caregivers of adults 60 years old or above, regardless of caregiver income-level or loved one's diagnosis, in the counties mentioned above. For those who are eligible, they provide complimentary family consultations with Family Consultants, who have master's degrees in social work or gerontology, and can provide emotional support as well as:

  • An in-depth home assessment to help define your individual care situation
  • A care planning session to meet your caregiving needs
  • Information about FCA's legal, education, counseling and respite services
  • Assistance with long-term planning and support needs
  • Personalized referral to local resources and community programs (support groups, adult daycare, home-care)
  • Ongoing telephone support and consultation. (They do host an eight-hundred number: (800) 445-8106, as well as accept local—San Francisco Bay Area—calls at (415) 434-3388)
