Quality of Life Grants: 2nd Cycle 2010: Caring and Coping
This Quality of Life grant will help to support a project that teaches massage to caregivers for patients in the acute inpatient rehabilitation unit. Caregivers will be instructed in basic massage therapy techniques, which will allow them to participate in a healing practice that has been shown to enhance health and well-being, as well as provide comfort to patients. Grant funds will support programmatic costs. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338).
