November is National Caregivers Month. Traditions First Bank understands that caregivers face many challenges, including mental, physical, and financial stress. Here are some tips for ways to reduce the financial burden.

Save on Prescriptions

Ask the doctor for free samples or request switching to lower cost generic drugs. Get help from the government with Medicare Prescription Drug Plans.

Use Senior discounts including groceries, medical supplies, restaurants, hotels, delivery and more.

Buy in Bulk

Wholesale stores like Costco or Sam’s Club include regularly used products like tissues, paper towels, cleansing products, adult briefs, incontinence products, etc.

Home Repair Discounts

Seek help from non-profit organizations in your community for home repairs or upgrades for your older adult’s safety.

Gifts from Family

Encourage family members to give useful gifts for the older adult’s birthdays and holidays. Make a list of what the older adult needs and give family members a copy.

If you have any questions about your credit score, we are here to help. Traditions First Bank’s mission is to provide banking services to clients based on our highest values while investing in our community. Contact Traditions First Bank today.
