Family Caregivers Fight On!

Welcome to the LACRC, a program of the USC Family Caregiver Support Center (USC FCSC) the community service arm of the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. We support family caregivers in LA County who help an adult relative or friend (over the age of 18) with one or more of the following tasks: physical care (getting in and out of bed), making health care decisions, cooking, cleaning, yard work, managing medications and going to doctor visits, making important decisions, shopping for groceries and other items, legal issues, help with bill-paying, bathing and dressing, or providing transportation.

We help informal, unpaid family caregivers who are caring for family members or friends. We are proud to serve families of all cultures and communities in LA County. We are funded in part by the State of California Department of Health Care Services, LA County Workplace Development, Aging, and Community Services, and the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. Our services are provided at low or no-cost to family caregivers and friends who help someone over the age of 60 with chronic medical conditions.


The Los Angeles Caregiver Resource Center (LACRC), an integral funding source housed within the USC Family Caregiver Support Center, is one of 11 nonprofit California Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs), serving family caregivers of adults (18+) affected by chronic and debilitating health conditions including dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebrovascular diseases (such as stroke or aneurysms), degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and multiple sclerosis, and traumatic brain injury (TBI), among many others.

Our well established partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services (WDACS) Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) program, supported by the County of Los Angeles Area Agency on Aging provides critical support to unpaid family caregivers; whether they be caring for aging relatives and other loved ones, or older senior caregivers of younger family members. The goals of the FCSP Program are to assist in minimizing the adverse emotional, physical, and financial consequences of unpaid family caregiving.
