The Society of Certified Senior Advisor’s has released its July Senior Spirit newsletter which provides readers with information on critical topics facing seniors, their families and those who work with them. Each month’s issue of the Senior Spirit newsletter will cover the latest in health, financial and social topics along with updates on current senior related news.
July’s Senior Spirit newsletter has placed significant emphasis on providing important information about those who are caregivers to seniors. The financial and social articles in July’s issue coincide with SCSA’s recent educational webinar Caregiver Burnout: Managing the Challenges of Caregiving which was held July, 25 2012. Many are not aware that being the primary caregiver to a senior may qualify individuals for tax relief. Those providing care are often burdened with significant expenses and find themselves working at a paying job less in order to provide quality care for their loved one. Tax deductions are available for those who qualify, learn about tax relief for senior caregivers by reading the full article at Caregiver Tax Credit
