Caregiving needs change daily. People become dependent on others. Other people suddenly find themselves in a caregiving role. People who are already providing care have new demands that affect their ability to help. Service providers may alter their programs. Thus there is always a need for information about available community services, both for caregivers and for those who need care.
Flex Spending Account for Adult Day Care
If your employer offers Fexible Spending Accounts for Dependent Care which covers child daycare, it might also cover adult day care. The IRS provides the benefit if it allows the employee to work. This is a pre-tax benefit. If the employee is financially responsible for the adult child or parent this would be a covered expense. Contact the HR department at your company or organization to learn details about this benefit.
