Respite Grants Available:

If you prefer another respite care site or in-home-care, you may apply for our Alzheimer’s Association Respite Grant Fund. Please do not apply for funds to cover your existing caregiver—the grant is intended to provide the means for those who need the respite coverage for the purposes of attending the conference. If you qualify, the Alzheimer’s Association will pay the respite caregiver directly, up to $300 for one day. Contact Alexandra Morris for an application: amorris@alz.org, 800.272.3900
