Eldercare

Eldercare expenses, such as nursing home fees, can represent a significant expense to a family. Possible professional judgment adjustments include:

  • Including the elderly individual in household size, even if they don't live in the household (i.e., if they live in a nursing home), so long as the family provides more than half their support.
  • Including the eldercare expenses as an adjustment to income.
As with childcare expenses, adjustments are limited to amounts paid to an unrelated third party.
