CADES recognizes the relentless financial burden placed on families who must care for an aging family member regardless of their situation. Our program charges a daily fee (set based on industry standards) that covers programming costs such as supplies, snacks, activities, personnel, etc. However, scholarships are offered to those who may struggle to afford daily fees.
Scholarship amounts vary based on each family’s needs as well as from year to year. CADES believes that finances or income should not limit an individuals’ ability to receive much needed services. There is no greater goal of our program than to remain a cost-effective option for the families who can afford to attend, while meeting the needs of those who cannot. We are proud to serve families of all income levels in our community.
It is projected that our program will provide between $28,000 and $30,000 in scholarships this year. We need YOUR help to continue serving and supporting individuals and families in our community living with dementia. Our fundraising goal of $12,600 will ensure our current scholarships are covered through the end of 2023!
