Caregivers RechargeMay 14, 2018
|It is a familiar story. Those who are eager to experience the joys of learning and travel but don’t have the chance. Perhaps their aging parent has moved in or their spouse is now in a nursing home. Whatever the situation, the reality is that for many caregivers it’s difficult to get away. That’s why Road Scholar created Caregiver Grants. It’s financial assistance to help offset the financial burdens of caregiving, so caregivers can benefit from their unique combination of learning, discovery and community — a combination that is especially helpful for caregivers experiencing isolation and feelings of depression, stress and anxiety.
Luanne, a recent Caregiver Grant recipient, said it best:
|As an academic institution, Road Scholar is proud to support our community of adult learners through their Caregiver Grants. This year, they have set aside funds specifically for caregivers that might go unused. If you are caring for a friend or loved one, we encourage you to apply. If you know a caregiver, please pass this information along. Getting away and recharging on a Road Scholar learning adventure could be just the thing they need.
