89 yr old lady..ontario resident--living in retirement home--NOT eligible for disability credit--pays $25 000 rent and $25 000 for services...can she claim services on line 130 under "attendant care"

Answer

The "attendant care" is claim on line 215 .

This is what the NOTE says on the T929 form.

You can claim amounts you paid for any of the following disability supports services or devices that you used because of your impairment:

Attendant care services provided in Canada and used by a person with an impairment in physical or mental functions. Amounts paid for attendant care services provided by the person's spouse or common-law partner, or to someone under 18 years of age, cannot be claimed. Full-time attendant care services may be claimed if the person with the impairment is eligible for the disability tax credit (an approved Form T2201, Disability Tax Credit Certificate, is required) or a medical practitioner certifies in writing that these services are necessary and that the impairment is likely to be indefinite. Part-time attendant care services may only be claimed if the person with the
impairment is eligible for the disability tax credit (an approved Form T2201 is required).

If you client does not qualify for the disability credit then it appears that she qualifies for this either

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
