If you are a caregiver for an elderly parent or someone living with Alzheimer’s disease, you may experience some emotional stress – but you also need to be aware of the financial issue involved. How can you prepare yourself?
First, consult with other family or close friends. Some may be able to help you with caregiving.
If necessary, seek advice from an attorney, who can advise you on suitable arrangements, such as a living trust or establishing a durable power of attorney for finances. With this authority, you can make financial decisions for the person with Alzheimer’s. You also might want to meet with a financial professional, who can help identify potential resources and money-saving services. And a tax professional may be able to help you find tax deductions connected to your role as caregiver.
Caring for an individual living with Alzheimer’s isn’t easy. But by taking the appropriate steps, you can ease frustrations and reduce uncertainties-and possibly give yourself and your family members a greater sense of security and control.
