Caring for an adult family member or friend who is frail, disabled or suffers from a brain impairment is often extremely challenging.

Whether you are helping your mother, father, grandparent, sibling, son, daughter or other relative or friend - ICRC can help you and the person you're assisting.

Who I'd like to meet:
ICRC's programs and services are offered to two groups of "informal" (unpaid) persons providing care:
1) A family member or other informal care provider of a person with an adult onset brain impairing condition. Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, traumatic brain injury, ALS, Huntington's disease, MS and other brain impairments are included.
2) A family member, friend or other informal care provider assisting an older adult (60 or older) who is frail or disabled and who needs assistance with two or more activities of daily living.
*Grant provisions may restrict or limit specific services and programs available.
Services are funded by California CRC (Chapter 1658) funding from the California Department of Mental Health, National Family Caregiver Support Program grant from the Riverside County Office on Aging and private donations.
Specialized services are offered to help families, friends and professionals...
Care planning, problem resolution, advice, emotional support and other assistance starts with meeting in the family's home.
A break from the day-to-day demands of care paid for by grants through ICRC. In-home care, adult day care, and out-of-home options are available. (Families may have a share of cost depending on funding source.)
Free one-time consultation with an attorney with special expertise in elder law and/or disability specialization practice.
Individual sessions with a therapist to deal with emotional issues related to caregiving. Six sessions are offered with a share of cost.
Referrals to existing support groups. ICRC offers specialized groups for particular populations and issues.
Education and Training:
Workshops, seminars, teleconferences and classes offer education to caregivers about the diseases and conditions they are dealing with, a place to learn new skills to manage care at home, reduce stress and find greater satisfaction in caregiving.
Special get-away opportunities for caregivers to be pampered and to find renewed strength and resolve through the arts, meditation/relaxation, exercise and fellowship with other caregivers.
Other "Supplemental" Services:
ICRC has special funding to offer minor home repairs, assistive devices, homemaker and chore services, home safety improvements and other services to help families keep the care recipient at home.
