The Brookdale Foundation Supports Dementia-Specific Programs that Improve the Lives of Senior Citizens
The Brookdale Foundation announces funding available through the Brookdale National Group Respite Program for dementia-specific programs that improve the lives of senior citizens. Grants will be awarded to day programs for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related disorders. In order to be considered, programs must have a regularly scheduled social model day program and provide a minimum of one four-hour session per week. Services must also be made available to family caregivers and care partners, either through the applicant organization or in cooperation with other community agencies. Services may include individual caregiver consultation and support, caregiver support groups, caregiver education and training, or information and referral to appropriate health and social services.
