  • Develop, enhance, and improve the variety and supply of informal and formal supports for caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s, including supports appropriate for elders and their caregivers in ethnic, immigrant, and tribal communities.
  • Support expansion of programs that use the New York University caregiver counseling model proven to increase the duration of family caregiving and delay nursing home placement.
