Becoming a caregiver is not something we typically plan for a long time in advance. And some of the responsibilities we assume have financial implications for ourselves, the care recipient and possibly our families.
The current system of financial supports available in British Columbia consists of various federal and provincial programs and tax breaks. How these programs and tax breaks apply to individual caregivers is dependent on the caregiver / care recipient situation but it is good to know some basics.
In this webinar we outline information on current financial supports available and use some common scenarios to illustrate. We are very fortunate to have two panelists for this webinar, both of whom have expertise in financial trouble shooting for caregivers.
