Betty Bazemore Memorial Respite Grant
The Partners in Aging Board of directors voted unanimously to establish a respite grant in memory of one of our founding members, Betty Bazemore. Betty passed away on November 7, 2014. She was a huge advocate for seniors and their caregivers. This grant is for family caregivers who reside in PSA 16 to receive respite care in her honor.
This grant will be aimed at families who are above poverty level, to help off-set or pay the cost of adult day, in-home aides, overnight stays or other respite services for their loved ones with dementia. The grant will be given for respite purposes.
