Caregiver Support Training
Project Status: Active
Grantee: Mount Saint Mary College
Funding Amount: $200,000 per year
Grant period: 10/2017 - 9/2020
WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
Literature shows that caregivers have limited access to socialization opportunities, information on how to cope with stress, and how to care for themselves while caring for others.
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT HELP?
The proposed project will implement two evidenced-based training models, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Positive Adult Development (PAD), to assist caregivers to reduce stress and learn to cope more effectively with both short- and long-term stressful situations.
