Project Overview and Objectives
Expansion of the project includes the following description:
The Minnesota Board on Aging will expand the current Administration on Aging sponsored, evidence-based New York University Caregiver Intervention (NYUCI) in cooperation with the Alzheimer's Association Minnesota/North Dakota Chapter, three Area Agencies on Aging and four new health care and aging service agencies. These four new sites include an African American site, urban and rural Hispanic sites and an additional rural site. The goal of this project is to improve spousal caregiver well-being and social support systems which delayed nursing home placement an average of 18 months in the original research.

Project objectives:
• To serve an additional 200 families with the NYUCI;
• To meet original NYUCI participant outcomes;
• To demonstrate workability in ethnically diverse community settings;
• To maintain fidelity;
• To embed the intervention into ongoing practice in Minnesota.
Target Population
Recruitment efforts will focus on families that live in rural areas and those with low socioeconomic status.
Anticipated Outcomes
• Reduced caregiver burden.
• Reductions in the negative impacts of care receiver behaviors.

Expected products include a "how to" manual, standardized assessment forms, cost analysis, marketing materials, articles/publications, a website section, and conference presentations.
