Abstract (Summary)

Providing direct caregiving for a loved one is emotionally difficult, and it can be uniquely challenging for male spousal caregivers. As men adjust to their new roles, they are faced with caregiver burdens, which can present complications mentally, physically, and financially. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal for a male caregiver support group for older adult caregivers within the greater Long Beach, CA area. The proposed program, entitled the Sure Project, would help caregivers decrease their stress, increase their coping abilities, and provide resources for additional community support. The most appropriate funder identified was the Archstone Foundation, as the goals of the Sure Project coincided with the goals of this foundation. The Long Beach Jewish Family and Children Services agency served as the host agency from this project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of the project.
