When you have responsibility for a family member who is unable to care for themselves due to physical or developmental disabilities, it is imperative you plan ahead for their needs. This person may be an adult child, a parent or grandparent or a spouse. What happens should you become unable to care for them? Do you have a plan in place to ensure they are cared for financially and that their physical needs are being met? If not, it could be time to think ahead and prepare in advance. Some of the issues to be considered include:
- Financial and personal care – the needs of a loved one can be fulfilled trough the appointment of a guardian and/or conservator to ensure they are cared for if you are unable to provide their care.
