Through the Hope and Healing Program, we hope to address the unique challenges faced by family caregivers of older adults with dementia and a history of trauma, by providing person-centered, trauma-informed approaches and services that can help ameliorate these challenges and promote the health and well- being of this uniquely vulnerable population.

During your assessment, you will be asked to provide information pertaining to the following: Trauma history, Dementia Diagnosis history, Caregiving situation, and Referral source information.
