Grant Description
Grants to Connecticut adult day centers in eligible locations for services that assist individuals with Alzheimer's or related dementia. Funding is intended for programs that benefit participants that have had a comprehensive medical examination that has ruled out other conditions such as traumatic brain injury, depression, alcoholism, or drug interactions. Eligible applicants must be located within the 14-town area of southwestern Connecticut: Bridgeport, Darien, Easton, Fairfield, Greenwich, Monroe, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Stratford, Trumbull, Weston, Westport, and Wilton.

Funded Adult Day Centers shall be serving individual/s with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or related dementia. For purposes of this program “Alzheimer’s or related dementia” means irreversible and deteriorating dementias that may include but are not limited to Frontotemporal disorders, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia/Vascular Cognitive Impairment, or Mixed Dementia. Participants receiving Alzheimer’s Aide services shall have had a comprehensive medical evaluation that has ruled out unrelated conditions such as depression, traumatic brain injury (TBI), alcoholism, or drug interactions.

Participants are expected to have a physician with whom the ADC may communicate and who shall certify by letter that he or she has done an appropriate medical evaluation and that the Participant’s diagnosis is irreversible and deteriorating dementia consistent with the definition provided above. Documentation to that effect should be on file at the funded ADC.

Minimum Service Level: Each adult day center must provide comprehensive services appropriate for Alzheimer's and/or Alzheimer's type clients. Services provided minimally must include but not be limited to exercise, nutrition, health monitoring (blood pressure screening, elimination patterns, etc.), the availability of licensed nursing supervision (appropriate care plan, assistance with medications, general nursing care), active and passive recreation, grooming, hygiene, transportation, activities designed to maximize the individual's cognitive and functional ability.

In addition, centers will be expected to provide caregiver support in the form of maintaining a regular link with a caregiver support group, family counseling, and/or training for family members or other caregivers. Centers are required to submit proof of certification by the Connecticut Association of Adult Day Centers.
