Do You Know Someone Raising a GRANDchild?

By Betty Cornelius, Founder of CanGrands

Would you like to help researchers learn more about your experiences as a custodial grandparent and earn a award?

If you answered YES!, you may be eligible to participate in a new research

study. CANGRANDS is in partnership with the National Institute for the

Care of the Elderly (NICE) and theUniversityofToronto, Faculty of

Medicine’s Institute for Life Course and Aging. The Institute for Life

Course and Aging is currently conducting a study to better understand the

financial literacy needs of custodial grandparents, and researchers will

use this information to create resources that will aid in improving

financial literacy. The study aims to integrate knowledge, wisdom and feedback from custodial grandparents about their experiences and to better understand their financial realities and financial literacy needs.

The study is currently seeking participants to provide feedback and input

on the experiences and financial literacy needs of custodial grandparents.
