Why a Personal Care Agreement is Important

When an older family member begins to fail in health and starts to need more care, this care is sometimes provided by an adult child. Sometimes that person has to sacrifice a job, benefits, privacy by having the senior family member move in or by having to move in with the family member. When this happens, there should be a formal agreement drawn up called a Personal Care Agreement.
