DescriptionThe Foundation’s Group Respite Program supports community-based efforts to develop and sustain social model respite programs for elders with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. The Respite Program and the specialized Early Memory Loss Program are both community-based, social model, day service programs that provide dementia-specific group activities for participants and respite from caregiving tasks for family caregivers. All programs must provide a day services program specifically for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease and/or other related disorders. Programs must provide a minimum of one, four-hour session per week, although a longer session or multiple days is preferable. Organizations that are funded under this program will receive grant support of $7,500 in year one, renewable for $3,000 in year two. The sponsoring organization must provide a 100 percent match of hard dollars and/or substantive in-kind support. Additional information as well as complete program guidelines and funding requirements are available on the Web site.
