It is a binding agreement, also known as the Agreement on Personal Care of Long-Term Care, a contract for elder care or a family care or care contract. Most of the time, it is called the body care contract. This agreement can assure family caregivers that they will not have unwarranted financial consequences. At the same time, the agreement can also assure your favorite person that he or she has a caring lawyer to meet care needs. Another legal consideration is that the beneficiary is not able to sign the contract. The person who holds the power of attorney or the guardian or the curator can sign. If the caregiver also holds the beneficiary`s power of attorney or guardianship, you should consult a lawyer. If you don`t think there`s a lawyer, read examples of agreements in the Resources section. “Do” Agreements A “do” agreement is a care agreement in which the concierge is responsible for carrying out the tasks (either personally or by the employees) at the janitor`s expense.
These agreements have a defined mission plan that the janitor must complete for a specified fee. Compensation is generally subject to annual INCREASES in the CPI and the agreement often provides for market control prices every three or five years. The key to these agreements is to ensure that care costs are properly set at the beginning of the agreement. If that is not true, there will be problems. If the pay is too low, the janitor will often look for ways to reduce the obligations to make the deal profitable. If the pay is too high, the organization will be unhappy and the janitor will be under constant pressure to do more work or increase the frequency of service delivery to justify the fee. Sometimes the organization will even look for ways to get out of the agreement if the owners think the right deal is fundamentally unfair. In the case of a contract with a family member, it is advisable to consider the agreement as a legal document. If your parent receives state-subsidized home care, the agreement will show the state where the money is going and what kind of services it is for.
