New Supplementary Report and Fact Sheet from the Evaluation of the National Family Caregiver Support Program

January 15, 2019

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) conducted a two-part evaluation of the Older Americans Act Title III-E National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP), and released the Process Evaluation Report in 2016 and the Outcome Evaluation Report in 2018.

ACL is now releasing a supplementary report based on a small, retrospective study of caregivers in the Outcome Evaluation: From Caregiver to Caregiver: The Wisdom and Insights of Former NFCSP Caregivers. The small group of caregivers in this retrospective study experienced a change in their caregiving experience during the evaluation because their care recipient passed away.

The report highlights caregivers’ experiences in providing care and accessing services, and it provides “advice from caregivers to caregivers.” A fact sheet is also available that summarizes key themes and insights from this group of caregivers.
