How Family Caregivers Can Ease the Financial Burden

April 6, 2017

From the U.S. News & World Report website

If you’re a caregiver for a family member who is ill or has special needs, money is always in the background.

It’s unavoidable. When people are sick or need special attention, it costs money; money you may not have. In fact, a new annual AARP Research Report, which surveyed 1,864 family caregivers between July 18 and Aug. 28, 2016, indicates that family caregivers spend an average of $6,954 in out-of-pocket expenses related to caregiving.

And if you have money problems while caring for a family member, your lack of funds only makes it harder to help them.

The good news: there are things you can try.
