Kathleen Kelly

Kathleen Kelly is Executive Director of Family Caregiver Alliance, a national US nonprofit organization providing direct family caregiver support services, public policy development, research and public awareness. She oversees the Bay Area Caregiver Resource Center’s direct services in the San Francisco Bay Area, California policy collaborations, and the National Center on Caregiving. The Alliance promoted the first legislation in the country for supportive services for family caregivers. It was first to recognize needs for specialized services for family caregivers caring for adults with chronic conditions. During her tenure, it grew from a grassroots program to a national organization providing leadership on supporting family caregivers with best practice interventions, public policy, state system development and leading-edge research. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and daughters. She has been a caregiver for several family members over the years. http://is.gd/R0ICUI
