The Rewards of Caregiving
I have talked often about the rewards of caregiving from the standpoint of it being an opportunity not a burden, etc. But there are also rewards that you can reap by applying for the right benefits to offset the cost of care. I’ll cover some of that in this episode. I was reluctant to apply for mom’s veteran’s benefits because we needed to set up a trust and that also meant paying myself as a caregiver, which quite honestly felt weird. But I swallowed my pride, took the payment, and enjoyed the rewards of caregiving.
