Our Respite Care and Wellness program is designed to provide family caregivers with information and education about the importance of regular time-off from caregiving, and help link them to available community-based respite care resources. We also provide a financial scholarship of $1,000 to help support the cost of respite care services.
Your gift of $1,000 or more can be designated to fund a respite care scholarship and directly assist family caregivers who often experience an overwhelming amount of emotional and financial stress due to the demands of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
You can help to improve the lives of family caregivers and their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease. For more information about funding a respite care scholarship, please call Julie E. Schuldner, Vice President, Development and Communications at 973.586.4300.
