Other questions about "Toll"

Q: what does "the toll elder care takes on families" mean?
A: The above sentence's usage of toll is referring to the stress that families go through caring for loved ones when they get old enough to need regular or perhaps constant assistance.

I think some families can handle the care better because they have more family members or sometimes more savings. Savings would help them by either offering them the ability to take more time off work to be with their loved ones or hire assistants.

Some families are smaller, or they could have less funds which would make care harder for them. They might need to work because money is tight, and if money is tight they might not be able to hire anyone to help.
