More and more elderly are choosing to live at home or with family members. And more and more adults are taking on the role of caregiver. However, if caregivers haven’t planned ahead of time, they may end up making rash decisions about how to absorb the costs – like withdrawing from savings or working more. Without proper planning these decisions can create unintended tax, property ownership and Medicaid eligibility problems for both the caregiver and care recipient.
