Support for Caregivers


Caring for a loved one with memory loss can be rewarding and uplifting. It can also be emotionally, physically and financially draining. The Alzheimer’s Association assists families in navigating through challenges and guiding caregivers to resources and support to reduce burden. St. Louis Chapter Care Consultants provide a comprehensive needs assessment and develop an individualized action plan to address unmet needs and link caregivers to chapter services and community resources. 

Caregiver Respite Fund


Qualifying caregivers can receive financial assistance to help with the cost of respite support (time off), products, equipment, safety services and legal guidance (lifetime maximum of $2,000).

Funding is available through the generosity of private and state funds including a grant from the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services. This fund is only available to people living in the St. Louis Chapter Service area.
