Caregiver grants from LifePath offer caregivers and grandparents raising grandchildren under the age of 18 an opportunity to refresh and renew away from their caregiving and childrearing responsibilities.
Caregivers have used these grants to pay someone (a family member, friend or neighbor) to provide them with in-home respite so they can rest; take a class (such as our workshop series, The Savvy Caregiver Program, for those caring for loved ones with dementia); visit friends or family out of town; and more. These periods of rest and rejuvenation give them peace of mind while knowing that their loved is being cared for while they are away.
Similarly, grandparents have used grant monies to help pay for childcare, camp fees, or additional household needs, giving them support during difficult times.
Grants are approved based on availability of funds. Please contact us to see how a caregiver grant might help you.
