Our Work


The cornerstone of the Smaltz Foundation’s work is supporting respite care and raising funds to offer gift grants for families to use adult day care centers.  These direct gifts allow families and caregivers to send their loved ones to an adult day care center where they can be active and cared for in a safe and compassionate environment.  These grants also cover some of the basic daily necessities needed in caring for a loved one - a quality wheelchair, senior bus care, needed toiletries - all simple items that can mean the world of difference to a caregiver and the loved one with Alzheimer’s.   

Every 66 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease.
