Margaret B. Moeller Memorial Fund for Alzheimer's Home Care Companions

The Margaret B. Moeller Fund for Alzheimer’s Home Care Companions provides grants for families in the Boyertown Area School District with members who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia to obtain the services of in-home care companions, aides or other providers of respite care.

Applications from Berks County families outside of the Boyertown Area School District will be considered if no families within the District apply for assistance. The fund was created to help families who are not eligible for any other form of reimbursement for such services. Grants generally pay for several days of care for a specified period of time.

To apply, follow this three-step online process:

  1. Indicate that you are applying on behalf of an individual in the one-question general application
  2. Complete the individual application
  3. Click the yellow “Apply” button to answer the supplemental questions related specifically to this fund (the questions are listed below for reference only – they must be answered online).

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, except applications are not accepted during the month of April. Decisions are generally made within 30-45 days of receiving a complete application, including the referral.

In order to apply for any grant, you must first click the Sign Up button in the top right corner to create an account. If you already established an account, click Sign In to proceed with applying for a grant.
