More than 130 families coping with Alzheimer’s disease will now receive much-needed support thanks to the Hilarity for Charity and Home Instead Senior Care Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Relief Grant Program.
Hilarity for Charity, a movement established with the Alzheimer’s Association, led by actors and writers Lauren Miller Rogen and Seth Rogen to inspire change and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, announced the partnership with Home Instead Senior Care to offer grants for in-home care services to eligible U.S. and Canadian families. In March, the first grants were awarded to Alzheimer’s families in need, totaling more than 6,000 hours of care.
Grant recipients will be connected with a Home Instead franchise in their community, which provide a professional CAREGiver specially trained in how to most effectively and compassionately assist individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Grants range from short-term grants of 25 hours to long-term care, based on the need of the family.
