The Latino community in general is known for underutilization of services. Latinos are unique in how they perceive support from professionals and face unique barriers when seeking services. The proposed program will provide a Spanish-speaking, culturally relevant support group program for Partners in Care. Through evidenced-based interventions including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, caregivers will gain a better understanding of dementia and they will be able to mutually support and adopt coping skills to enhance resiliency and adaptability to the different caregiving situations as the disease progresses. A search for potential funding sources was conducted to find an appropriate source. During this search, the Annenberg Foundation was identified as the best source of funding due to program's mission and structure. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this academic project.
