The Brookdale Foundation works to advance the fields of geriatrics and gerontology and improve the lives of senior citizens.
Through its National Group Respite Program, the foundation provides seed grants, training, and technical assistance to organizations working to develop dementia-specific social model day programs.
Grants will be awarded to day programs for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related disorders. Programs must include a regularly scheduled, ongoing, social model day program and provide a minimum of one four-hour session per week (though longer sessions or multiple days is preferable). In addition, services must be made available to family caregivers and care partners, either through the applicant organization or in cooperation with other community agencies. Services may include individual caregiver consultation and support; caregiver support groups; caregiver education and training; and information and referral to appropriate health and social services.
