Abstract (Summary)

Dementia challenges both the individual with the diagnosis and their family members. The person with dementia will need increasing levels of care and supervision. Family members who become caregivers will be faced with role changes, demands on their time and energy, financial difficulties and emotional strain. The purpose of this project was to identify a potential funding source and complete a grant proposal for the Alzheimer's Association to create a program that will assist caregivers by offering them financial assistance with obtaining respite care. The program in question will take place over the course of 1 fiscal year. In addition, the program will educate caregivers about the demands of caregiving and offer them counseling, family mediation, support groups and access to long-term care planning assistance offered by the Alzheimer's Association. Actual submission, acceptance and/or funding of this grant proposal were not required for completion of this project.
