The Roselyn Carter Institute (RCI) is the only national organization to integrate both professional and family caregiver issues in research, education, and advocacy agendas. It establishes local, state, national, and international partnerships committed to building quality, long-term, home and community-based services. We believe this begins with providing caregivers with effective supports to promote caregiver health, skills and resilience. We also believe strongly in the need to provide greater recognition for professional and family caregivers. We focus on helping caregivers coping with chronic illness and disability across the lifespan.

RCI's overall goal is to support caregivers – both family and professional – through efforts of advocacy, education, research, and service.
