Family Support Fund Application
Support Fund Information sheet
Physician's Statement

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. 

Assistance will be granted on a first-come-first-serve basis for as long as funds are available for that year. 

There are no income requirements for eligibility; however, because funds are limited, we hope potential applicants will  pursue insurance coverage first and that applications will reflect a genuine financial need. 

Items requested from our approved vendor will be paid for by the Alzheimer's Association, St. Louis Chapter Office.

Ways a Caregiver Can Use Funds:

  • Incontinence supplies/bedpads
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Durable medicalequipment (shower chair, grab bar)
  • Safety supplies/services (Safe Return, door alarms, home safety supplies)
  • Alzheimer medication not covered by insurance
  • Occupational therapy assessment

Program Requirements:

  • Family Support Fund application must be completed for approval
  • Physician's Statment must be completed, stating the applicant does have Alzheimer's disease or related dementia
  • Person with dementia and his or her caregiver must live in one of the Missouri counties the St. Louis Chapter serves
  • Person with dementia must live at home

The Family Support Fund is currently available in Missouri ONLY
