The National Alliance for Caregiving is a non-profit coalition of national organizations focusing on issues of family caregiving. Alliance members include grassroots organizations, professional associations, service organizations, disease-specific organizations, a government agency, and corporations.  The Alliance was created to conduct research, do policy analysis, develop national programs and increase public awareness of family caregiving issues.  The Alliance has: conducted the National Caregiver Survey, which has identified the profile of the caregiver, care recipient, and the impact of caregiving; developed the Family Care Resource Connection, which provides reviews and ratings for over 1,000 consumer-oriented caregiver resources such as web sites, videos, books and brochures; produced Toward a National Caregiving Agenda: Empowering Family Caregivers in America, a national grassroots caregiving movement focused on advocacy and activism which will organize and mobilize family caregivers around the country; conducted The Third International Conference on Family Care, October 12-14, 2002, the first international conference on family caregiving held in the US; and developed MetLife Study of Sons at Work: Balancing Employment and Eldercare (with Towson University), which compared caregiving tasks and impact on work attitudes of over 1,300 male and female caregivers at three large US employers.
