by Calderon, Daisy, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 55; 1606054
Abstract (Summary)

Caregiving has become a public health priority of national concern. While caregivers of seriously ill patients face complex demands, caregivers to end stage renal disease patients are especially burdened. The proposed program entitled Renal Caregiver Support Group was designed to educate, promote awareness, support and networking opportunities among caregivers impacted by end state renal disease. The overall goal of this grant program is to help decrease caregiver stress and burden by increasing coping skills for caregivers for end stage renal disease patients. The proposed program will be hosted at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, California. The host facility shares values in healthy families and a just society through value-based relationships and community-based programs. A search for potential funding sources resulted in the selection of The California Wellness Foundation. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
