The Palm Healthcare Foundation Announces $145,000 In Grants

The Palm Healthcare Foundation, the leading public healthcare foundation in Palm Beach County, has announced approval of $145,000 in new grants for family caregiving resources and programs in Palm Beach County.

“The Palm Healthcare Foundation focuses on family caregiving as one of its key priorities,” said Andrea Bradley, Palm Healthcare Foundation president and CEO. “These new grants will provide educational resources for caregivers and fund local programs to reduce costs and increase independence for Palm Beach County’s senior community.”

The foundation’s grants are:

Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service – $75,000. This grant will expand the Enhanced Companion Program, pairing retired older adults in Palm Beach County with other older adults who have challenges with daily living activities in order to maximize the individual’s independence.

Kramer Senior Services Agency/MorseLife – $25,000. This grant will finance the Just Checking Program, a long-term, community-based case management program for frail elderly and seriously chronically ill people who live in their own homes in Palm Beach County.

Ruth and Norman Rales Jewish Family Services – $45,000. This grant will finance the Caregiver Respite and Resources Program (CARES), educating caregivers, who are often family members, on how to handle the responsibilities and challenges in caring for a loved one, while also learning to care for themselves and maintain their own emotional and physical well-being.

The foundation is committed to finding ways for inspired giving and thoughtful funding to generate lasting change. It has invested nearly $58 million to support 130 organizations. For more information about the Palm Healthcare Foundation, visit or call (561) 833-6333.
