CAN helps a wide range of family caregivers, from the parents of children with special needs to the families and friends of wounded soldiers, from a young couple dealing with a diagnosis of MS to adult children taking care of parents with Alzheimer’s disease. CAN, which used to be called the National Family Caregivers Association, is a non-profit group that gives family caregivers across the country free education, peer support, and resources.
