Respite Care Grants available for Alzheimer caregivers

Alzheimer’s Arkansas has Family Assistance Grants available for those who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia. Approval for the grants is not based on income.

These $250 grants may be used to pay for respite care, legal services, home care supplies, home modification or mental health counseling.

Funding for these grants comes from the annual Advocate of the Year Award and dinner. For more information call Barbara Jensen at (800) 689-6090 or go online at
