Caregiving & Finances

Balancing life’s caregiving responsibilities presents financial challenges for women while caring for their kids and as well as for their aging parents.

Women are typically the caregivers taking care of their children and their parents. It’s time-consuming, takes your time away from a paying job, and is draining on your own physical and mental health, and can elevate your personal financial worries as to how to pay for the care of others while not dipping into your own savings. Learning about your parent’s financial situation so that you can help them and be an effective caregiver while maintaining your own income and savings is critical.

As a caregiver, you need to create a financial checklist for yourself so you do not go into debt. Your own financial stability is primary.
