Attached is the FSF application.  NEW THIS YEAR! is a tax form that needs to be filled out with the name and info for the caregiver before returning.  Missouri caregivers are able to access up to $1,000 for eligible expenses incurred after the acceptance date of the application, with the receipts received in our office by the end of May. We can pay for services used in June, as long as they are prepaid and the receipt is in our office by May 31.  

One thing we suggest is for people to buy incontinence supplies for up to a 6 month period.  Same with Boost or Ensure.  

Completed applications may be emailed to dianna@northlandsc.org, along with proof of diagnosis and the tax form. Please contact us if you have any questions!

Road Scholar’s Caregiver Grants


At Road Scholar, we acknowledge the weighty responsibility carried by all adults who serve as family caregivers for ill or disabled relatives.

The warm, welcoming and friendly nature of our learning adventures provide a much-needed respite from the emotional and physical demands of being a caregiver. We're committed to helping you offset the costs of arranging substitute care while you attend a Road Scholar learning adventure through our Caregiver Grants.

You’re an eligible caregiver if you are the primary unpaid caregiver providing daily care and support for an ill or disabled family member (spouse, parent, adult child, partner or sibling).

Your loved one may also be receiving home care, hospice, visiting nurse, LPN services, or comparable and related services.
Your loved one may be in adult day care, memory care, a nursing home or comparable or related facility.
You have lost a loved one within the past two years who was in any of the above situations.
You live in the United States and are 50 years of age or older.
You have not taken a Road Scholar program in the last two years.
Caregiver Grant Application

The Impact Grant Committee happily accepts fully completed applications mailed to the address listed on the application form. We ask that you allow four to six weeks for us to review your application.

The Liberty Hospital Half Marathon and William Jewell 5-K presented by HyVee is the premier healthy living event in the Northland. The Liberty Hospital Foundation is asking for volunteers for the March 3 event.  If you love the outdoors and enjoy helping your fellow Northlanders, this is the place for you to put your volunteer skills to work. All proceeds from the run will go back into the community in the form of grants. Northland Shepherd’s Center (NSC) received a grant last year to help with its Liberty BreakTime Club. Therefore, when you volunteer, you’re helping NSC.

For information, visit www.libertyhospitalhalf.org, and hit the green “Register” button to select and time, location and station where you want to help. The scenic race through Liberty and Kansas City is set for March 3 starting at 8:30 a.m. The race starts and finishes at the Liberty Community Center, 1600 S. Withers Rd., in Liberty. Aid stations will be located about every 1-2 miles along the route. Volunteers will be able to pick and choose how and when they will help. At the beginning of the race, the end of the race and at points in between. You’ll have a fun and beneficial day out after being cooped up during the severe winter weather.
