Free help from family isn't really free. There is ALWAYS a cost to caregiving. Someone is paying the price. Is it you?
Caring for elderly loved ones creates financial, legal, and personal costs that many caregivers don’t discover until it’s too late. Many caregivers put their own financial, legal, and personal futures at risk because of misguided notions about what it means to be a caregiver.
Most of us will find ourselves in a caregiving role---eventually. Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter said it best: She said, "There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.”
As our firm’s elder care coordinators like to say, there is always a cost to caregiving, even if you're not paying for it, because somebody's doing it.
Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law aims to empower family caregivers with the information and resources needed to minimize the negative impact of these hidden costs. That's why we are offering two free resources to help you understand whether these hidden costs are affecting you.
