Aging with Pride: IDEA. IDEA (Innovations in Dementia Empowerment and Action) is a first-of its kind, free  program utilizing evidence-based problem-solving, low-impact exercise, and tools of health coaching for empowering older adults with memory loss AND their care partners (friend, partner, spouse or other who assists them.) to improve their well-being and health. Either the person with memory loss or the care partner needs to be LBGTQ and they (the two of them) will receive a total of $125 for their time.
The Coach connects with the participants using a very easy VIDEO CHAT process; the program includes 9 virtual sessions with a coach over 6 weeks, with 5 phone interviews over 13 weeks.

Note: The project is being conducted in Seattle, San Francisco and  Los Angeles and our partners include GenPRIDE, Openhouse, Family Caregiver Alliance, and LA LGBT Center.
