The Taiwan Association of Family Caregivers is the first public welfare association to establish the rights of family caregivers in Taiwan. With regard to the long time ignorance and indifference to family caregivers, a group of scholars, experts and professionals caring about family caregivers came together to form TAFC. The association consists of individuals and communities that care for family caregivers including: scholars, nursing specialists, medical doctors, occupational therapeutics, social workers, family caregivers and others that come from every corner of Taiwan. Together the association focuses on increasing public awareness of issues related to caregiving, advocacy for caregiver’s rights in government affairs, research and development plans to aid family caregivers, and promote the communication and cooperation among the relevant communities.
