Grants of $10,000 and in-kind support to USA nonprofit organizations and public agencies for the development of new social model programs with an Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and dementia-specific focus. Programs will provide daytime services for individuals affected by AD Disease and other dementias. Preference is given to programs that have the strong potential for continuity and expansion when this seed grant funding is completed.
Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias have a devastating impact on both people with the disease and their caregivers. Alzheimer’s can lead to premature institutionalization, along with emotional, physical and financial hardship. The Foundation awards seed grants to service providers that plan to offer new, dementia-specific Group Respite or specialized Early Memory Loss (EML) programming to participants, along with support to caregivers, in order to help individuals remain in their communities.
The Group Respite Program and the specialized Early Memory Loss Program are both community-based, social model day programs that provide dementia-specific group activities for participants and respite for family caregivers and care partners.
Programs are open a minimum of one day a week for at least four hours per session, offering people with AD or related dementias regularly scheduled opportunities for socialization and meaningful group activities in a supportive environment. At least one paid professional staff member and a core of trained volunteers, students, and program assistants provide staffing for sites.
In addition, programs offer access to other services for participants and their families, such as individual counseling for caregivers, information and referral to other health and social services, and support group meetings for family members.
GrantWatch ID#: 123719
Funding will be available for up to 15 Group Respite and Early Memory Loss programs.
Selected organizations will receive:
1) Grant support of $10,000 in year one, renewable for $5,000 for the second year, based on evaluation of first year’s activities and potential for future continuity of the program.
2) All expense paid participation for one staff member at the Training Conference, to be held October 24-26, 2019 in Teaneck, NJ (Grantees may send additional staff at their own expense).
3) Ongoing technical assistance and support from the staff in San Francisco, CA and from The Foundation in New Jersey, which includes newsletters, unlimited toll-free telephone support, and participation in the Brookdale Respite Network. Technical assistance continues to be available to all programs that become self- sufficient and continue to follow either the Group Respite or Early Memory Loss program model.
Funding will be available beginning October 2019.
Grants will be awarded for one year and may be renewed for a second year.
