They usually don’t (can’t!) quit their jobs. They don’t give up their children. They just quietly take on the often gargantuan task of caring for an elderly loved one—on top of everything else. AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving estimate there are about 4.3 million of these selfless people in California alone. It’s a big issue and virtually no other organization is working to protect their rights.
A caregiver usually faces extra financial hardship, as well as physical and emotional consequences. Bet Tzedek has been working for over a decade to empower caregivers to:
- make health decisions when a family member is incapacitated
- get help paying for in-home or long-term care
- gain peace of mind through proper legal planning
- avoid other legal complications
The Caregiver Companion
Bet Tzedek recently created a unique consumer guide to help caregivers navigate the complicated maze of regulations and laws that affect caregivers and their family members who need care. This 94-page publication uses a friendly question-and-answer approach to take on your most common problems. It’s free. It’s easy to use.
