Eldercare and Caregiver's Relief Fund.
I am a caregiver who assists a sibbling with caring for our mom during my summers off from my educator work. This summer while in the process of teaming up with my sibbling to seek assistance with home care, exploring the costs of memory care in assisted liiving homes, and applying for financial assistance grants etc. tragedy struck and my sibbling's adult son sadly passed away. Within 2 weeks my sibbling had 2 strokes was hospitalized and has had arterial procedures. Since a stress free life is necessary to heal and maintain his healh, he can no longer be on my mom's caregiving team. I've taken a family leave of absence which has now enced and while reeling from all thats been happening, I am my mom's caregiver and am still responsible for paying my out of state rent and bills. Since I must return to my own state to either find a way to secure my job for September and explore whether my mom can live with or near me, I must seek funding. I am wondering if anyone knows of a foundation that assists famiies who can't afford home care or assisted living with memory care option. I am aware of the Veteran's Benefit, the NJ Statewide Respite Program and am grateful that we can seek an Alzheimer's grant. I could assist with some home care costs, provided I can work again. I am grateful that I was here to assist my family when in need; however I will be at risk if I don't continue to pay into social security. My mom's dementia/alzheimers requires that she no longer live alone. Any funding or scholarship info would be grately appreciated
