North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) - Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS)
Contract for services to North Carolina human service organizations and government agencies to employ family consultants for caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's or related dimentias. Qualifying applicants should have amassed experience in rendering community-based services for this target population. The purpose of the program is to hire consultants that will assist caregivers and care partners with information and referral services, individualized care consultation, respite care, and education and training.
Recognizing how important it is to support families caring for an individual living with Alzheimer’s disease and/or related dementias, the State of North Carolina through the Division of Aging and Adult Services offers Project CARE in all 100 counties. North Carolina is served by six regional Project CARE sites, each with one full-time equivalent Family Consultant. The purpose of this RFA is to select six regional host agencies employing one FTE Family Consultant with dementia and caregiving expertise covering the assigned counties in North Carolina. The Family Consultants collaborate with Family Caregiver Support Program which provides supports to family caregivers of adults age 60 and older or a person with dementia or grandparents raising grandchildren.
Project CARE draws on a family consultant model to provide comprehensive support to caregivers of individuals with ADRD. The goals of the program are (1) to educate and empower caregivers, increasing their awareness and usage of community-based supportive services and resources, and (2) to improve the quality, choice, and use of respite care as well as improving access to it.
Caregivers receive family-centered assessments and individualized care plans, guidance, counseling and limited respite care if financially needed. Respite care gives caregivers time to practice self-care enabling them to provide better care. Family Consultants also link caregivers to existing home- and community-based services, entitlement programs, local dementia organizations, support groups, and other caregiver focused initiatives. The program targets underserved populations, those with lower incomes (non-Medicaid), rural and/or minority individuals who are caring for a person with dementia at home.
