Call out for Latino caregivers dealing with Alzheimer’s or dementia
Are you or anyone you know a caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia? Do you work with dementia caregivers or in an organization that serve this group? They may benefit from this new program funded by the National Institutes of Health.
The Mirela Team is looking for Latino dementia caregivers to participate in a free program to help cope with dementia, alleviate stress, and improve quality life. In collaboration with Stanford University and the Alzheimer’s Association, and funded by the National Institutes of Health, materials in Spanish languages are being created specifically for Latino families.
The program is free of charge, it can be done at home, and only one face-to-face meeting is required. A DVD, brochures, and online resources will be provided to participants. There is a compensation of $50 for participation.
Eligibility: Latino, age 18 or over, and have access to Internet/DVD Player; provide care to a person with Alzheimer or other dementia for at least 8 hours/week; and be willing to share experience about caregiving and the materials.
For more information or to start participation, please go to the website or contact the Mirela Team at / toll-free +1 (855) 955-CARE (2273).
We appreciate if you share this new program with your contacts.
Thank you for your attention!
The Mirela Team
