Tax tips for Kelowna caregivers

Caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia brings economic as well as emotional costs.

Some of those financial costs may be tax-deductible, advises the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.

“As tax season approaches this year, it is important that you are aware of the credits that you may be eligible for,” said Jennifer Hamilton, the society support and education coordinator for Kelowna.

The society has created a special tax edition of its newsletter “In Touch,“ which provides some basic tax tips that may be particularly useful for caregivers.

“It is a helpful starting point when considering what to discuss with your tax preparer,” said Hamilton.

The “In Touch” tax edition can be found at www.alzheimerbc.org

For more  information, contact Jennifer Hamilton at the Alzheimer Resource Centre, 865 Bernard Ave., at 250-860-0305 or email jhamilton@alzheimerbc.org.
