Scott's Tip Of The Day: If you can't afford to put your elderly relative in a home (where they can receive full time attention and care), just drop them off at daycare for toddlers. Obviously a full-time home is a better option, since daycare really will only watch after your elderly relative during working hours, but it is better than nothing.
"But what they won't accept my elderly relative into daycare? Daycare is for little kids!"
You actually don't have to worry about much. Your elderly relative probably already wears a diaper. They are probably shrinking too. People have been known to lose an inch or two when they get older. Elderly people tend to hunch a little, so this also makes them look smaller. Your elderly relative probably speaks a lot of gibberish, not unlike a 3-year-old. All you have to do is put some dye in the elderly relative's hair, give them a lunchbox, and dress them in t-shirts featuring Dora The Explorer, Bob The Builder or Spongebob Squarepants. They will fit right in.
Congratulations! You just saved thousands of dollars!
