Funding / Donations

This program is funded by various grants throughout the year. The Healing Trust / Nashville, the Community Foundation of Mid TN the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, the Dandridge Trust, and the United Way of Bedford County are the  major continuing grants we have received. Other financial resources include Bedford County,  churches, businesses, clubs, and individuals. Christ Lutheran Church provides office space and utilities.

The average cost of care in the home per year for one person with dementia is more than $20,000, paid mostly by the family and patient. With support and education, caregivers can keep their loved ones at home about one year longer than would otherwise be possible.

We welcome donations that help provide respite for caregivers. Memorials, honorariums, and contributions may be mailed to:

Caregiver Relief Program
