Family Caregiver Alliance
The Alliance is accepting applications for its Rosalinde Gilbert Innovations in Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiving Legacy Awards. The annual awards program recognizes organizations that focus primarily on family/informal caregivers of adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. The Alliance will award grants to organizations for projects or programs that respond to a pressing community need in the areas of creative expression, diverse/multicultural communities, and policy and advocacy. Awards for Creative Expression recognizes projects that use imaginative and creative approaches in supporting persons with dementia or family/informal caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Awards for Diverse/Multicultural community projects or programs are given for services, support, or other types of outreach to family/informal caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s or related dementias in communities characterized by ethnic, religious/spiritual, socioeconomic, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender, geographic and other types of diversity. Policy and Advocacy awards recognize programs or projects that advocate for systems change for the benefit of family/informal caregivers or care recipients with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. Additional information including an online application can be found on the Web site.
