THE CARE CHALLENGE:
We address the two major problems for caregivers: limited time and chronic exhaustion.
WHAT WE DO:
The Caregiver Relief Fund provides vouchers for at-home respite care. We fundamentally believe a balanced caregiver is the foundation of a healthy, happy family and a respected care receiver.
AT HOME RELIEF:
Vouchers for professional at-home care services are donated or purchased on behalf of the Caregiver Relief Fund. We award these vouchers to caregivers, giving them time to address their personal needs and financial resources to invest in their own well-being.
WHO WE SELECT:
We select individuals who have been in a caregiving role for a chronically ill individual, elder or disabled person for 12 months or longer. Applicants must not have an annual income that exceeds $80,000.
HOW WE DO IT:
Caregivers fill out an application form, share their caregiving story and go through an interview. We then select and match the available relief funds with the needs of the caregiver.
The Caregiver Relief Fund was established in 2009 and was born out of the direct caregiving roles from each of the founders. America is facing a massive crisis of the family. Caregivers are being crushed. The number one challenge we found was severe pressures on their time, health and financial resources. The consequences are massive. We are here to address this challenge.
We want caregivers to have the time needed to get a long-term plan in place. This starts with getting them some relief and time. We created the Caregiver Relief Fund to respect caregivers, build strong families and ultimately help America face one of its single largest challenges: the aging of America and its impact on caregivers.
