This email is ONLY for families who meet this criteria:
* live in Santa Clara County or San Mateo County
* have a loved one with dementia (LBD, PSP, CBD, etc)
* have a financial need (On a temporary basis, this is somewhat flexibly defined.)
* have a way to spend caregiver respite funds before June 30th
Caregiver respite funds can be spent on in-home care, adult day care, or temporary facility care.
These funds must be spent by June 30th!
Generally the caregiver respite grants cap out at $1K but I think there’s even some flexibility with that. The funds must be paid directly to the care provider, not the family.
Even if you might have unpaid in-home care bills (or adult day care bills) dating back to July 1, 2016, these are eligible for the respite grant.
The Alzheimer’s Association is distributing the funds. Please contact our friend Alex Morris at 408-372-9940, [email protected]. She would be happy to hear from you to know that these funds can be used before they vanish.
Please let me know if you were able to take advantage of this!
