Hilarity for Charity® and the Home Instead Senior Care® network are working together to award home care grants to those providing care to their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. The home care grants will be awarded across the United States and Canada. While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s, there is care. The goal of the home care grant is to provide exceptional home care to families affected by this disease, and to give these families support and rest.
Please note Hilarity for Charity has awarded all available funds for the current grant cycle. Acceptance of grant applications will resume in May 2018.

Making a Difference in the Lives of Families Through In-Home CareHilarity for Charity and Home Instead Senior Care have partnered together to provide families in need with an immediate resource through an in-home care program. Shari felt like she was chained to the house because her mother with Alzheimer's disease needed constant care. Then Shari came across an opportunity for a respite care grant that changed her life. The in-home care program allows families to get some relief from caregiving for a little and come back completely reenergized.
Hilarity for Charity
After being actively involved in the Alzheimer’s community for the past several years, Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen (along with some amazing friends) created Hilarity for Charity (HFC) in 2011. HFC hosts awesome, one-of-a-kind, and most importantly, hilarious events to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s among a younger generation. Seth and Lauren established the Hilarity for Charity Fund as part of the Alzheimer’s Association, through which monies raised are directed to help families struggling with Alzheimer’s care, increase support groups nationwide, and fund cutting edge research.
