In 2017 Mount Saint Mary College's Center on Aging and Disability Policy was awarded a grant from the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council to launch the ProActive Caring Program for families of individuals with disabilities. This program will provide 1,000 family caregivers of individuals with intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities with expanded training and support over a three-year period.
To implement the ProActive Caring Program widely, the Center on Aging and Policy at Mount Saint Mary College is partnering with community agencies across New York State and conducting train-the-trainer sessions for teams of agency/organization staff and parent advocates. It is also developing Digital Resources to reach caregivers, family members, and agency/organization staff at home and in local communities throughout the state.
