Title
Human Services Department recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign a grant application for submittal to Soroptimist International of Cameron Park, requesting $5,000 to support services to vulnerable elderly residents and their caregivers at the County’s Senior Day Care center.

FUNDING: Soroptimist International of Cameron Park Grant.

The “Program Budget” on page 3 of the application illustrates that portion of the SDC budget that currently funds services to ADCRC eligible clients, which equates to approximately 70% of the total SDC FY 2009-10 budget. This grant funding will assist the Senior Day Care Center in continuing to provide support services to frail adults who are functionally or cognitively impaired due to Alzheimer’s and related disorders and their caregivers. Services include respite, care plan development and management, specialized dementia care, assistance with medication and personal care and coordination of daily activities.
