Our Mission

Our Mission

The Brookdale Foundation Group consists of the Brookdale Foundation, Glendale Foundation, and Ramapo Trust. All three were endowed by the Schwartz family and all share a common outlook and purpose: to enhance the quality of life of older adults.

The National Group Respite Program supports community-based efforts to develop and sustain social model group respite and early memory loss programs for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families.


The Relatives as Parents Program (RAPP) promotes the creation and  expansion of services for grandparents and other relatives who have taken on the responsibility of raising children due to the parents' inability to do so.

The 2024 Brookdale National Group Respite Program Request for Proposals has been released. Click Here for more information, including the RFP and guidelines.
