The Caregiver Relief Program offers free nursing care to families of persons suffering with memory loss and their caregivers.  The mission of the organization is to provide a balance of physical, social, emotional, and spiritual care, along with the knowledge that the community is concerned about their welfare.  This grant will enhance the quality of life for both the caregiver and their loved one with dementia. Caregivers of persons with memory impairment will be provided health assessments, support, education, respite, and referral sources.   The outcomes of this program include lowering caregiver burnout, education around communication with someone with memory loss, accident prevention, safety, setting up the home environment as well as education about diet, nutrition, and eating problems.  Caregiver satisfaction, confidence and lower stress levels will be tracked.
