Catholic Charities, Partners Embark on Collaborative Caregiver
Initiative Designed to Expand Safety Net in Seven Counties

  

Buffalo, N.Y., Jan. 4, 2015 – Catholic Charities of Buffalo and its eight partners are mobilizing for an early 2016 start for the comprehensive Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiver Support Initiative, the result of a $7.5 million award announced recently by New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

Through the five-year grant, a focused, collaborative service network is being developed to support and impact Caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia across seven counties in Western New York.  The goal is to expand the safety net for Caregivers by recognizing and addressing the need for supports and stress reduction strategies.
