Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Goshen County

Total Budget: $8,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Activity Type: Health: Disease

Summary: This project will provide approximately 250 hours of respite care/home health/well check/nursing services to families working with the dx of Alzheimer's/Dementia

Goshen County continues to serve an aging population with an increase in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Our community has come together over the past 5 years and identified different resources to support a successful respite program for families dealing with this diagnosis. The need continues on, so our need for bringing more resources to this project also continues. This project will meet the needs of approximately 250 hours of this desperately needed skilled care. The average hourly rate is around $30 per hour. Over the next 18 months, club members will continue to seek resources for this project, while allowing this funding request to serve current needs. Members will be directly involved in public service announcements, PR designs through flyers, brochures, and social media announcements, referrals, and working with the skilled staff of the respite program to make sure all needs are being met for these patients.
