Are there any financial aid for the caregiver of her elderly parent if she has to quit her job in order to care for the parent? I financially need to stay employed, but want to care for my ailing father. I am worried about his eyesight and hearing is a big issue. Also, he does not like to ask me to go with him to doctor appts like he should. He does not want to bother me. But he forgets exactly what is told to him by the time he gets home. My father has always been there for me and I want to care for him in the fashion he well deserves. I need to know some options in caring for him myself.
