Dementia Care and Respite Services Program

The Foundation's Dementia Care and Respite Services Program was designed to expand the availability of dementia-specific day programs, other community and in-home respite services, and related health and supportive services.This Phase II grant will enable the project to determine whether it can expand provision of day programs and other respite and health-related services needed by people with dementia and their caregivers in a financially viable manner. To accomplish this, the grantee will: (1) increase average daily attendance at second new day center to 27/day by end of year 4; (2) provide overnight respite for 5/month by end of year 4; (3) increase private pay revenue from 41 to 63 percent of total operating expenses, with projected private pay revenue totaling $125,248 by end of grant period; and (4) decrease reliance on non-operating revenue from 42 to 2 percent of total operating expenses.
