by Cano, Melissa, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 58; 1587888
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to find a potential funding agency and create a grant for an in-home visitation program for homebound, older adult veterans. The goal of the program is to promote enriching relationships, increase levels of compassion by both parties, and decrease levels of depression/loneliness and/or social isolation among the older adult veteran population within Los Angeles County, California. The program will offer visitations by community college students and weekly activities addressing depressive symptoms while incorporating access to case management support for additional needs, such as medical and psychiatric referrals. The host agency for the program will be Home-Based Primary Care in the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. The Archstone Foundation was selected as the funding source for this grant. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
