For the Caregiver - Finding Tax Relief; Coping with Long-Distance Challenges and Fears

The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released the July issue of Senior Spirit.

Senior Spirit is a monthly newsletter featuring the latest news on important issues facing seniors, their families and the people who work with them. Each issue contains comprehensive articles on medical news, financial topics and lifestyle trends as well as how these issues impact you, your business and your senior clients - all straight from the experts.

The three main articles include:
  •  Noise Pollution - A Health Hazard for Seniors - The effects of noise pollution on the ears of a senior can be a nuisance at best but can also cause long-term health problems. Addressing the problem of too much exposure to noise can help create better health for senior.

  • Caregivers Find Tax Relief - When paying for the medical care of another, a person is permitted to write off certain expenses. Specific guidelines must be followed, but the benefits are there for the taxpayer.

  •  Overcoming Difficult Challenges in Long-Distance Caregiving - Adult children who are long-distance caregivers have similar but more complicated challenges as those who care for nearby parents. Practical tips, good resources and technology help long-distance caregivers cope and get a solid plan in place.
