The Prentiss Caregiver Care Network Project

The mission of the Prentiss Caregiver Care Network Project is to enhance the quality of life of older adults in the Greater Cleveland area through education and training of caregivers. The objectives of the project include: Informal caregiver education and training for non-professional caregivers – primarily family members, kin, and friends; The development of a community-based and managed care-net for caregivers, e.g. a community caregiver resource center, with the guidance and participation of a newly formed Community Advisory Board and on-site training of caregivers professionals, nonprofessionals, and volunteers in long-term settings, such as faith based service organizations, nursing homes, and home health agencies.
