  3. Apply for a Caregiver Grant and Recharge!

The folks at Road Scholar are offerring the opportunity for Caregivers to acquire a grant for a Road Scholar trip. 

It is a familiar story. Those who are eager to experience the joys of learning and travel with Road Scholar 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 their 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. 


Sue, a recent Caregiver Grant recipient said it best: “My Road Scholar trip truly took me away from my everyday responsibilities caring for my mother. It helped me realize I want more challenges like this. I remind myself regularly that some caregivers might not get such opportunities, or know they even exist, and so my gratitude only grows.

Road Schlar's fiscal year ends June 30th — in just a few weeks — and they have funds set aside specifically for caregivers that might go unused. If you are caring for a friend or loved one, we urge 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.
