Know the Benefits

Many caregivers take time off of work to fulfill their caregiving roles. This can create substantial financial concerns. Balancing caregiver and employment responsibilities, the unpredictable nature of caregiving and the time it takes, often make it difficult to continue working on a normal schedule

Employment. Talk early to your human resources personnel to discuss the Family Medical Leave Act, job accommodations, and other ways that your caregiving role can be supported while maintaining employment. 
Health insurance. If your caregiving duties include managing health care bills, ask for a copy of your loved one’s health insurance benefits so that you’re familiar with their in network providers, be sure you understand the plan’s deductibles, copays, and out of pocket maximums.
Keep it organized. Be sure that financial information is in order, bank account beneficiaries, life insurance information, other important documents.
