The Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA) was created in 1968 to help with the establishment of services to those most at-risk, based on various factors. Funding from both Federal and State governments support programs such as National Family Caregiver Support, Disease Prevention, Congregate Meal, and Information Assistance to name a few. The goal of ICOA is to help older adult and people with disabilities to remain independent, avoid institutionalization, and age in their home and community of choice. For more information, you can visit the ICOA website at www.aging.idaho.gov.
“People deserve the very best we can offer, from safety and quality care to advanced technology, education and tools to live a healthy life. Our strategy outlines our plans to improve access to care, lower costs, and work with partners to support healthy communities.”
Goals of the Idaho ADRD Program are to increase ADRD stakeholder collaboration; promote ADRD risk-reduction in program planning and priority setting; educate Idahoans about evidence-based interventions to reduce the risk of ADRD and reinforce brain health across the lifespan; and collaborate with healthcare providers and public health professionals on the best available evidence to improve care for those diagnosed with ADRD, their families, and caregivers. As the program evolves, the goals will too.
Questions can be sent to our Idaho ADRD Program email, and one of our Idaho ADRD staff members will respond as soon as possible: ADRD@dhw.Idaho.gov

Family Support Partners & Training, LLC
This program provides the training necessary for parents/caregivers with lived experience to become Certified Family Support Partners (CFSP). CFSPs are professionals who assist families with children who are living with a mental illness. Because CFSPs have walked a similar journey, they are better able to help other caregivers: identify their family’s strengths and needs; identify and use wellness tools, coping strategies and social skills; learn advocacy skills to be more engaged in treatment processes; feel empowered and hopeful; find relevant resources; and decrease feelings of isolation.
Family Support Partners & Training, LLC also helps agencies develop family support programs that enhance the work already being done by clinical staff.
