The National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota is proud to offer a Respite Care Grant program to provide caregivers with respite so they can take care of themselves while they are caring for someone with Parkinson’s disease.
This grant is available to individuals who are unable to afford care services on their own and are ineligible for other subsidized programs. Through this program, caregivers my receive financial help in order to take a break from caring for their loved one with Parkinson’s. Currently, the Respite Care Grant is $500 annually per family. Families can use grants to help pay for in-facility or in-home care. Our goal is to provide caregivers an opportunity to take care of personal needs reducing the overall stress related to their caregiving responsibilities.
