Caregivers spend $7k-$12k of their own money…
I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY
Helen is caregiving for her father and he refuses to tell her anything about his finances.
Helen has her father living with her and her husband. Their children are grown.
Her husband keeps telling her that she’s gotta get a handle on her father’s finances because it is costing a significant amount of money out of their retirement to take care of him.
Helen knows this is true, but she doesn’t know what to do because her father will not talk to her about how much money he has.
The average caregiver spends $7000 to $12,000 a year of their own money on their loved one.
This really begins to hurt when you consider the fact that these caregivers are either getting ready to retire or retiring and living on a fixed income and now you are expected to take care of their parents.
On top of that is the emotional guilt you feel that they are even thinking about the money when your parents spent years taking care of you.
But it sure would be nice to know what Helen’s father has in the bank.
When Helen asks him about it all he says, “All is well and you’ll have it soon enough.”
We showed Helen and her husband how to get a better handle on this.
This is what caregiver haven is all about.
It’s about best practices and how to solve a problem like this.
So now Helen and her husband are relieved at what they now know.
