Preliminary Experiences of the States in Implementing the National Family Caregiver Support Program: A 50-state Study (2006)
This article is based on the first nationwide survey of all 50 states and the District of Columbia in providing caregiver support services since passage of the NFCSP. State program administrators reported that their program differs from other home and community-based services programs because of the explicit focus on the family or informal caregiver. Results suggest that despite an increasing availability of caregiver support services in all 50 states, there is also a great unevenness in services and service options for family caregivers across the states and within states
