Alzheimer’s Caregivers Network
Refreshing Relief Respite Grant
Online Application Form
Alzheimer’s Caregivers Network understands the challenges faced by those providing in-home care for their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease. Our Refreshing Relief Respite Grants aim to provide you with an opportunity to rest and take care of yourself! These grants are available throughout the United States. The grants are for respite care hours. They have no cash value.
Who can Apply for a Refreshing Relief Respite Grant?
Anyone currently providing care for a loved one living at home with Alzheimer’s disease can apply. Professionals serving the Alzheimer’s caregiver can also complete the application on their behalf. The caregiver must be providing the care in the United States.
How does it work?
Complete the online application. Our review committee will award grants based on need and available resources. If you are approved, you will go to Care.com and engage the in-home memory care provider you feel most comfortable with in your area. This control over who provides the care for your loved one is an important component of our respite program!
At Care.com, most of their background-checked memory care providers charge between $20-$25/hr. Alzheimer’s Caregivers Network will reimburse grant recipients up to $100/month for 3 months of respite care, meaning at those rates, you will have 4-5 hours of free respite care each month for 3 months!
