Wartburg Receives a $50,000 Grant from the Field Hall Foundation

Wartburg is proud to announce that it is the recipient of a $50,000 grant from The Field Hall Foundation. This grant will provide financial assistance towards the cost of attendance and transportation for Wartburg’s Adult Day Care program.

Family caregivers are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It’s a tough job, especially for those balancing work, kids and other obligations. Paying for an adult day care program alone is a hardship and transportation costs create an added burden. Through Wartburg’s Caregiver Assistance for Respite Expenses (CARE) “scholarship program”, Wartburg will provide access to their adult day care program and all its benefits to seniors and their caregivers with financial need. CARE aligns with Wartburg’s mission of helping those with the greatest need continue to live independently and with dignity.

Wartburg’s Adult Day Care program provides a safe, stimulating environment for seniors, with special support for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia – and a much needed break for the caregivers who love them.

The Field Hall Foundation was incorporated in 1986 to assist Field Home – Holy Comforter, a not-for-profit nursing home, and Catherine Field Home, a home for older women, in providing high-quality caring services to its residents and patients. In 2018, Field Home was sold to a for-profit organization, with the assets from the sale invested in the Foundation. The Foundation’s aim is to provide grants that will improve the lives of older adults and their caregivers in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties, NY. – Wartburg
