Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Support groups for caregivers of older adults with end stage renal disease: A grant proposal
by Ramirez, Mayra, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 63; 1589647
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to obtain funding to provide support groups for caregivers of older adults who have been diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) in the Los Angeles area. The purpose of the support groups was to increase caregivers' level of emotional well-being as they would have a social support system in place. The caregivers would also receive psychoeducational services relating to ESRD to better understand how they could care for their loved ones.

An extensive literature review was conducted to identify effective interventions for the target population and to locate potential funders. The support groups were designed to enhance the quality of life for both caregivers and/ or their care recipients as they learn coping strategies. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
