Hilarity for Charity® and the Home Instead® network are working together to award home care grants to those providing care to their loved ones living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. The home care grants will be awarded across the United States and Canada. While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's, there is care. The goal of the home care grant is to provide exceptional home care to families affected by this disease, and to give these families support and rest. These grants are facilitated by Home Instead Senior Care, where available. These grants are for respite care hours, there is no cash value.
