Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are devastating diseases that affect older adults' ability to live their formative years independently. Alzheimer's disease greatly impacts older adults' memory, behavior, language, and social interaction. Family caregivers must cope with the loss and the changes of their loved ones as a result of the disease manifestation. The purpose of this grant was to seek funds to develop a support group program that will educate family caregivers about caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease. Through education and awareness, family caregivers will gain a better understanding of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Furthermore, the support group will give family caregivers an opportunity to share their experiences as a caregiver while adopting coping skills to enhance resiliency. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this academic project.
