Margaret B. Moeller Memorial Fund For Alzheimer's Home Care Companions
The Margaret B. Moeller Fund for Alzheimer's Home Care Companions provides financial assistance to family members living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia who live in the Boyertown Area School District. These funds must be used for obtaining the services of in-home care companions, aides or other providers of respite care. The Berks County Community Foundation manages the fund. 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 is designed to assist 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.
The fund was started by Margaret's husband, Bill, in gratitude for the support services his wife received from Chestnut Knoll At Home. Their caregivers’ experience with Alzheimer's disease and their compassioned care enabled Margaret to receive the care she required and allowed Bill the respite he needed.
