Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was write a grant and to locate a potential funding source for a psycho-educational program. The program would provide Latino caregivers access to services and information regarding dementia. A literature review was conducted to investigate the obstacles that informal Latino caregivers face and to understand what interventions may reduce the gap between service providers and the caregivers.

This program would address the issues of the lack of culturally sensitive services and information. The Archstone Foundation was chosen as the funding source for the program. The host agency that was chosen for this project was A Day Away Adult Day Health Care located in La Mirada, California. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
