welcome to the USC FAMILY CAREGIVER SUPPORT CENTER

Since 1989 the USC Family Caregiver Support Center (FCSC). at USC Davis School (home of the LA Caregiver Resource Center) has placed a high priority on providing support across the continuum of caregiving, including diagnosis, prognosis, services that help maintain the care recipient’s independence and abilities, helping caregivers care for themselves, and manage their own well-being. Supportive services include information, assessment, individual consultations, respite, education, and training. Our vision is:

“To be a model for Los Angeles, the state and the nation, by using technology, research, and education to transform caregiving and the long-term care system.”
