What happens when a family member needs extra help or needs to move in with you? How do you keep everyone happy and avoid family strife?
This week on Focus on Elder Law, Sherri discusses Caregiver Agreements and how they can help you when you have a family member in need of extra care. In this episode Sherri talks about:
- Having the conversation with the family member in need and the rest of the family.
- Coming up with a plan that meets the needs and desires of the family member in need and is financially feasible for them.
- Coming to an understanding about what is expected of all parties involved and putting that agreement in writing.
- Planning for disability in a way that meets the needs of the family member while still maintaining their independence for as long as possible.
