Paving the Road Towards a Better Future
More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer's or other dementias, according to the Alzheimer's Association. Often these are spouses or relatives who provide loving care. Our Loving Care grants are designed to help those unpaid caregivers by providing paid care and allowing them time to rest, refresh and rejuvenate themselves.
