About Arizona Caregiver Coalition

Arizona Caregiver Advocacy

 











Who We Are

The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is a community-based, 501(c)3 organization that was founded to support and advocate for family caregivers in Arizona. The coalition was developed through the Governor’s Advisory Council on Aging and serves a mandated role as part of the Arizona Lifespan Respite Program. The Coalition plays a vital role in facilitating and improving collaboration among fragmented nonprofits, government entities, and for profit enterprises. Our commitment is to caregivers of any type regardless of the medical reason for their caregiving role.

The Division of Aging and Adult Services at the Department of Economic Security graciously hosts the Arizona Caregiver Coalition’s operations. Current funding of the Respite Rebate Program is through a partnership between Arizona Caregiver Coalition, Arizona Association of Area Agencies on Aging, and the Division of Aging and Adult Services.

Our Mission

The mission of the Arizona Caregiver Coalition is to be the catalyst for improving the quality of life for family caregivers and loved ones in Arizona through collaboration, advocacy, resources, and education.

Vision

The vision of the Arizona Caregiver Coalition is for all Arizona family caregivers to have sufficient knowledge and access to resources which support the caregiver and their loved ones to live full and healthy lives.

What We Do

The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is the equivalent of “Google” for Arizona caregivers. We help those caring for others (regardless of the medical reason) by offering a Respite Rebate Program, a Caregiver Resource Line, and an online resource database. The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is a strong advocacy arm for Arizona caregivers.
