Financial Support for Caregivers

Dementia Respite Grant

The Dementia Respite program provides small grants to unpaid caregivers of individuals with irreversible dementia. The purpose of the grant is to help delay or prevent nursing home placement by offering support and relief to caregivers who care for their loved ones, including in-home services, adult day programs, or personal respite for the care provider.  

Caregiver Training

We offer training opportunities for caregivers which focuses on everything from reducing stress, improving self-confidence, balancing your life and locating resources.
