The purpose of this project was to identify a funding source and write a grant to implement a cognitive stimulation therapy group for Latinos with Alzheimer's disease and a support group for their caregivers. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best way to treat these unique populations. Latinos are predisposed to many risk factors for developing Alzheimer's disease and face many challenges and barriers when dealing with it.
The proposed program will be administered through the Alzheimer's Association, California Southland Chapter. It will provide cognitive stimulation therapy for participants with Alzheimer's disease to help them maintain cognitive functioning and a higher quality of life. It will also provide a support group for their caregivers. It is anticipated that at least 18 participants with Alzheimer's disease and 18 caregivers will be served. The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement of the thesis project.
