Acclaim Health – $2,000 (Seed Grant)
Kitchen Equipment for People with Dementia
Grant supports a new microwave and dishwasher for the new Burlington Adult Day Program location. The ADP supports the mental health of people with dementia and Alzheimer disease by providing a safe and engaging space in which they can participate in activities and use their remaining abilities. One of the interactive activities clients regularly participate in is baking and helping in the kitchen during snack/meal times. Last year the ADP provided dementia care to 64 people and their families in Burlington.
