Relatives as Parents (RAPs)

Relatives as Parents (RAPs) are individuals – grandparents and other family members – who are raising a relative’s child. There are more than 10,000 of these care providers in Idaho, and the RAP arrangement can be challenging from a legal, financial, and social standpoint.

The Family Caregiver Navigator (FCN) is a pilot project of the Idaho Caregiver Alliance. The mission of this project is to enhance resilience and systems of support providing person-centered counseling, custom care planning,  and resource referral to family caregivers across the lifespan. 

Fit and Fall Proof

Researchers and students conduct statewide evaluation activities for the Idaho Fit and Fall Proof (FFP) program housed in the Idaho Physical Activity and Nutrition Program, Division of Public Health at the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The FFP program, established in 2004, is a peer volunteer-led collaboration between state and local public health organizations.  The goal of the program is to help older adults maintain independence by improving mobility and function and providing opportunities for social engagement.   FFP also brings sustainable physical activity programs to underserved populations, including those in rural and frontier communities.
