The Caregiver Information Project: a mechanism to assist religious leaders to help family caregivers
The Caregiver Information Project trained 200 clergy, lay religious
volunteers, and social service providers about caregiving issues and ways
to disseminate information to family caregivers. The project succeeded in
improving knowledge about aging and caregiver issues, increased perceived
competence in working with family caregivers, and stimulated the
development of caregiver programs and activities.
