The Brookdale Foundation Group
The Group has issued a request for proposal for a start-up social model group respite programs for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their family caregivers. The Foundation will award up to 15 seed grants for the development of dementia-specific group respite programs and up to five seed grants for the development of specialized programs for people with early memory loss. Seed grants are $7,500 the first year with an opportunity for a second year grant of $3,000. Funds may not be used to support or expand the hours, days, or service capacity of existing social, health, or medical model programs. Sponsoring organizations must provide a 100 percent match of hard dollars and/or substantive in-kind support. The RFP packet is available for downloading on the Web site.
