Caregivers of persons with dementia are at risk of mental and physical illness due to challenging caregiving tasks. Failure to adjust to the caretaking role may result in poor health and inability to continue in the role, resulting in a family decision for placement in long-term care facilities. The project was to develop a grant proposal for funding an in-home education and therapeutic support program for these caregivers. A review of literature on outcomes of caregiver support programs ensured that the program would contain appropriate interventions. The project was to develop a grant proposal to fund a program to be administered by the Alzheimer's Association, whose mission is to provide and enhance care and support for all persons affected by dementia and to reduce the risk of dementia through promotion of brain health. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant proposal was not required for successful completion of this project.
