Abstract (Summary)

There are approximately 43 million caregivers in America who are providing care to their older adult family members. Many informal caregivers are thrust into their caregiver role without a transitional period, creating a challenging situation and placing them at risk for psychological, physical, social, and financial complications. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund and develop a support group for the newly transitioning caregivers at East Valley Community Health Center located in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys. The program offers supportive services through a 12-week caregiver support group specifically designed to assist caregivers as they transition into their new roles. The goals of the support group are to improve caregiver psychological well-being, improve their coping and increase their knowledge of community resources. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of the project.
