What does it mean? "The physical and emotional burden of providing care to an aging loved one is compounded by the fiscal burden as well." Could anyone tell me what 'fiscal burden' mean in this sentence?

Fiscal means related to money, monetary issues. A "burden" is something that weighs heavily on you, either a physical thing (a heavy backpack) or a situation (being in debt). A "fiscal burden" is a situation that costs a lot of money. In this situation, it would be all of the medical costs associated with an elderly person.
