DescriptionThe Foundation works to improve the lives of elders in the United States. Established in 1950 by brothers Henry, Irving, Robert, Benjamin, and Arnold Schwartz, the Foundation switch its initial focus from the medical field and scholarship support for higher education to serving America's senior citizens. Grants are awarded in three areas: Group Respite Program, Relatives as Parents Program, and Leadership in Aging Fellowship Program. The Respite Program grants support community-based efforts to develop and sustain social model group respite and early memory loss programs for people with Alzheimer's disease and their families. Relatives as Parents Program grants promote the creation or expansion of services for grandparents and other relatives who have taken on the responsibility of surrogate parenting. The Leadership in Aging Fellowship Program encourages and supports emerging leaders in the field of aging. The deadline is for the Group Respite Program grants.
