Grant Program

The goal of the Alzheimer’s Care Grant Program is to provide exceptional in-home care to families affected by this disease and to give these families support and rest.

Hilarity for Charity and the Home Instead Senior Care network are working together to award in-home care grants to those providing care to their loved ones living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. Hilarity for Charity is proud to have awarded over 211,000 hours of in-home respite care across the United States and Canada.

  • “I cannot begin to tell you how much this grant has meant to me..The gift of this treasured grant allows me some rest each week, and/or time to run errands. When our caregiver arrives, I am able to leave with peace of mind..Thanks from the bottom of my heart for providing funds for our 'angel' each week.”

  • “The words Thank You just don’t seem to be enough to express my heartfelt appreciation. I have barely been out of Sue's sight, since 2006. Our world has shrunk to the size of her bedroom and bath with conversation from babbling to hysteria. Please accept my total gratitude, for the chance to join humanity again.”
