Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal project was to develop a Support Group Program for Spanish-speaking caregivers caring for older adults with dementia. This project identified potential funding sources, the population's needs and a grant proposal to implement this support group program at the host agency, WISE and Healthy Aging in Santa Monica, CA. The needs of the Spanish speaking caregivers were identified through demographic data, literature review, and support group models were also reviewed to identify a best practice support group for this population. Funding sources were researched via Internet and a grant databases. The funding source chosen was the Archstone Foundation. This grant was written with the intentions of providing resources and services to Spanish-speaking caregivers to minimize the stresses and challenges associated with caregiving. Improving the quality of life for all involved in the caregiving role was the focus in order to improve their quality of life. This writer hopes to expand this program to other non-English speaking communities with similar needs.
