The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a psychoeducational program for caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The goals of this program are to: (a) increase their knowledge about (AD) and the caregiving role, (b) increase their skills in caregiving individuals with (AD), (c) enhance their competence as caregivers, and (d) decrease caregiver distress. An extensive literature review was performed to assess the needs of caregivers and support the method of this proposed program. Archstone Foundation was identified as a potential funder for this program. Tri-City Mental Health Center (TCMHC) in Pomona is selected as the host agency for this psychoeducational program. The psychoeducational program will consist of 2-hours sessions delivered once a week for 6 weeks, providing both educational and supportive interventions. Actual submission of the grant was not required for successful completion of this project.
