The purpose of this project was to develop a proposed program, write a grant proposal, identify a funding source, and select a host agency for an educational program to educate skilled nursing facility staff members on alternative treatment options for people with Alzheimer's disease. A literature review was conducted in order to examine the history of Alzheimer's disease, prevalence and symptomology of the disease, and past, current, and alternative treatment approaches. The educational program will be located at Community SeniorServ, Inc. Senior Serve in Anaheim, California. The program will provide skilled nursing facility staff members with education on the harmful side effects psychotropic medications have on patients with Alzheimer's disease, and on innovative techniques to treat the negative behaviors associated with the disease. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
