Eldercare Financial Assistance Locator


Step 1 of 3

Over 400 programs provide financial assistance for elder care.  Help comes from federal, state, and local governments, the VA, non-profits, private organizations, and as many as 50 other agencies.   The large number of sources and different and often conflicting qualification rules makes determining one's eligibility a challenge. 

By answering a few questions, we help you find the programs for which you or your loved one is currently eligible as well as those programs for which you might become eligible as your situation changes.
