Help us care for families facing this disease, educate young people about living a brain-healthy life, and activate the next generation of Alzheimer’s advocates.

Caregiver Respite Program

The HFC In-Home Care Grant Program relieves caregivers, giving them time to rest, recharge and focus on their personal and professional life. Delivered with our partner, Home Instead, HFC’s Care Grants provide 3-6 months of free, professional, in-home care.

Grants for family caregivers of American Indian and Alaska Native people

The International Association for Indigenous Aging (IA2), which manages the American Indian and Alaska Native Resource Center for Brain Health, is partnering with HFC to provide up to 25 respite care grants for family caregivers of American Indian and Alaska Native people living with memory loss, other cognitive issues, and/or a diagnosis of dementia and/or Alzheimer's disease.

These respite care grants for family caregivers from American Indian and Alaska Native caregivers of AI/AN families (including Tribal communities, Alaska Native Villages, and urban Indians) and are funded by the generous support of the CDC Foundation who is working to address increased direct service needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
