Avoiding Financial and Legal Pitfalls
Tues, May 24 • 1-3 pm
In-person at Trailside
All too often, people take on the role of caring for a loved one without sufficient understanding of the critical legal issues. In reality, what we spend now, and how we document it, can impact possible Medicaid eligibility down the line or create major conflicts within families. Join Wendy Kanar from Poznak Dyer Kanar Schefsky Thompson PLC for a discussion of legal pitfalls that caregivers may face and precautions you can take to protect yourself and the loved one you are assisting.
Examples of legal questions caregivers face as they navigate the caregiving journey:
- Should I obtain a written contract to receive payment for the care I give dad if I
quit my job to help him?
- If I move mom into my house, or I move into hers, what legal obligations do I get
- If a loved one loses the capacity to make decisions for themselves, what documents
do I need, so that I can make decisions on their behalf?
- What’s the difference between a Guardianship, Conservatorship, and Powers of Attorney?
Still more questions? Watch for a separate session on Estate Planning to follow on June 22nd from 1-3 pm.
