Kendal Charitable Funds has awarded a $25,000 Promising Innovations grant to the Michigan LGBT Aging Project to develop resources and trainers for two categories of unpaid caregivers: caregivers for LGBT older adults; and LGBT caregivers for older adults. Both types of caregivers often are not family members.
A $20,000 Promising Innovations grant to Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, will fund a yearlong Caregiver Boot Camp program. The initiative will provide education, empowerment and support to unpaid family caregivers of elders who exhibit behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia.
Kendal at Hanover resident Jack Hemenway supports the Elizabeth Fry Fund to honor the memory of his wife, Harriet. The fund supplements the resources of public servants, enabling them to join the community.
