Rosalinde Gilbert Innovations In Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiving Legacy Awards
Administered by the Family Caregiving Alliance, the Awards promote innovation in the field of Alzheimer’s caregiving. The Awards recognize efforts which lead the way in addressing the needs of Alzheimer’s caregivers. Three awards of $20,000 each will be presented to nonprofit organizations, government agencies, or universities in the following categories: The Creative Expression Award, the Diverse/Multicultural Communities Award, and the Policy and Advocacy Award. The Creative Expressions Award honors programs or projects that use novel, creative approaches to support persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their family/informal caregivers. Examples include art, music, theatre, poetry, multimedia (film, documentary, radio), or technology used for creative engagement or other types of creative expression. The Diverse/Multicultural Communities Award is given to programs or projects that address a gap or chart a new way to deliver services, support, or outreach to family/informal caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias in diverse racial/ethnic, age, religious/spiritual, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer), rural/remote, limited income, and other groups of caregivers with unique needs. The Policy and Advocacy Award honors programs or projects that advocate for policy or systems changes for the benefit of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and/or their family/related caregivers. Eligible programs and projects include legislation, executive or administrative changes, media or public awareness campaigns, advocacy campaigns, or any other actions to strengthen public or private recognition and support of family/informal caregivers.
