I am caring for a formerly athletic,
robust, middle-aged health care professional
whose life changed in one day due to the
diagnosis of brain cancer. My life, too,
turned upside down.
Here's my question. I have located
resources for applying for educational grant
aid for cancer patients, but NOT for
caregivers who must leave work due to
caregiver load. I wish to consider online
programs for further education, but where
can I find possible financial aid resources?
Thanks so much.

You may want to check out the Older Americans Act Title III E National Family Caregiver Support Program services available in your state by contacting your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA). You should be able to google and locate the closest AAA and get contact information. They primarily serve seniors (60+) but have lots of resources for caregivers. Best of luck!

You may be able to identify financial support through two sources: Eldercare Locator (www.eldercare.gov and 800-677-1116) and BenefitsCheckup (www.benefitscheckup.org). Good luck!
