Alzheimer's Project Wins $1 Million Federal Grant
San Diego County’s homegrown effort to fight Alzheimer’s disease just received a $1 million federal grant to enhance the abilities of social workers who serve dementia patients and provide respite to loved ones who care for such patients at home. The funding, awarded by the Administration on Aging at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is intended to help the county’s Alzheimer’s Project build a case management program that will hopefully make it easier for dementia patients to find the resources they need quickly after diagnosis.
