Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease is a 24-hour/day that can exhaust the caregiver physically, emotionally and financially. A caregiver’s health may deteriorate from stress and sleeplessness, adding to the challenge and reducing the quality of care that can be provided. Although it cannot address all issues, there are resources available to help decrease the burden in ways that are most helpful for each person's situation.
Through the Family Support Fund the Alzheimer's Association of St. Louis hopes to ease the burden to families in need by assisting with some of the costs incurred with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.
The Family support Fund provides financial assistance up to an annual maximum of $500 per family (renewable for one year) for expenses related to the care of a loved one at home diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.
