This year’s Hope as Big as Texas event celebrates Hispanic Heritage and Hope!
This virtual celebration will explore the connection between caregivers and Hispanic artists, both applying creativity, inspiration, and commitment to someone and something they love and cherish. The Quality of Life fund is committed to providing in-home respite care support through Quality of Life grants to families of those diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD), or multiple system atrophy (MSA). Studies have shown that these diseases affect all ethnicities equally. However, they are often underdiagnosed in rural and underserved areas without a Movement Disorders Specialist.
Each grant provides $1,500 for 54 professional caregiving hours through Griswold Home Care or an alternative home care agency.
Bringing Respite Care to those in Need
At last year’s Hope as Big as Texas, we were fortunate to raise enough funds to provide support to 40 families with PSP, CBD, or MSA, bringing our total to over 100 families served! Studies show that even a brief break or relief from caregiving responsibilities can improve the daily life of caregivers and their loved ones diagnosed with the disease. The importance of these services and the critical role of respite care are evident now more than ever. Our fight to find treatment and a cure is equally steadfast!
