The Richard E. WeimerRichard Weimer

Stroke and Caregiver Assistance Fund

After suffering a stroke, you may be overwhelmed with confusion, concern, resentment, and a whole host of questions regarding what you should do next.  Richard E. Weimer established a fund designed to provide aid and support for stroke survivors. The Trustees of the Richard E. Weimer Trust understand the challenges that you might be faced with after suffering a stroke. Our goal is to help support the Stroke Survivor along with their family, friends, and caregivers, by helping to provide resources (not available from other programs i.e. Federal, State or County programs) to help in the aftermath of a Stroke. Such help might consist of direct services, advocacy, spiritual or emotional support, therapy or other forms of support.

Candidates from the Kalakaua ‘Ohana Exercise Club seeking assistance and those from The First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu will receive priority in consideration.  Candidates or their Caregiver/Representative will complete an application and be evaluated by a professional case assessor.

The Richard E. Weimer Trust is committed to being part of the help for the individual and their families and loved ones. Some forms of help that might be provided included

  • Assistance with cost of Physical Therapy
  • Care coordination and long-term care management
  • Assistance with cost of Subacute Care Facility
  • Assistance with cost of Skilled Nursing Facility
  • Assistance with cost of Residential Care Facility
  • Assistance with cost of Home Care
  • Assistance with cost of home modifications
  • Assistance with cost of adaptive equipment and supplies
