How to Pay for Elder Care
Finding ways to pay for elder care, get paid for caregiving, or finding financial assistance when taking care of an elderly family member isn't easy. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer on how to pay for elder care. Even if you have to quit your job to care for a family member, it is extremely difficult to be handed a check for being a family caregiver – even though you deserve it – it’s a full-time job! Unfortunately, there's no cut-and-dry answer. Programs and assistance vary widely by state and individual circumstances.
