A stressful conversation for each family is what happens to money when a parent gets sick, and who will serve as the primary caretaker. One method of discussing difficult topics is to hold a family reunion. The team of monitors meets in a comfortable place, seated at a table and able to accommodate the documents discussed. (Using technologies such as Skype can help involve family members who live far away.) A well-organized meeting can provide family members with common support and a better understanding of the decisions to be made. If the hired guardian is a family member or friend who lives in the same house, there may be tax benefits for the employer. Simply put, if the caregiver is there to “care” for the patient and does not give up more than 20% of his daily activities, the caregiver cannot be entitled to a minimum wage. It is a binding agreement, also known as the Agreement on Personal Care of Long-Term Care, a contract for elder care or a family care or care contract.

Most of the time, it is called the body care contract. This agreement can assure family caregivers that they will not have unwarranted financial consequences. At the same time, the agreement can also assure your favorite person that he or she has a caring lawyer to meet care needs. Many families reach a point where they realize that a sick or elderly relative needs help. There are usually warning signs: difficulties with daily activities; Storage problems banking and financial problems; Several falls; Driving problems I forgot the meds. Sometimes an elderly or sick person needs more than occasional help – they need full-time care. This type of informal care plans may seem attractive, as they can solve a number of problems.
