Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The benefits of fall intervention programs for older adults: A grant proposal
by Manzano, Diana, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 59; 1486321
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for funds to develop a fall intervention program for Partner's in Care Foundation, a Multipurpose Senior Service Program (MSSP). Partner's in Care Foundation is a non-profit community organization. This organization helps prevent vulnerable older adults from premature hospitalization and nursing home placement. The program will offer instruction and supervision to vulnerable older adults on how to use fall interventions through exercise, medication management, and home modifications.

Based on the findings from the literature review, it was evident that fall prevention contributes to a longer life span and improves quality of life. After an extensive review of online web searches and grant data bases, the grant writer narrowed down the agency most appropriate to fund the grant. The funding source selected for the grant was the Archstone Foundation. The grant writer hopes this fall intervention program will assist older adults in preventing falls in order to live a more independent life.
