Our Goal

To increase supports and services for caregivers and decrease caregiver burden. We understand that successful achievement of this goal will result in reduced caregiver financial, emotional, and physical distress. The long term benefit would be to improve caregiver health and quality of life which results in a reduction in care receiver emergency visits and delayed or avoided institutional placement.

Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiver Support Initiative

The Center for Neurobehavioral Health was awarded a 5- year grant for $7.5 million as part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Initiative. This funding will allow us to provide needed outreach and support to caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
