an open hand catching all sorts of things

This is really what it all about.

The idea is that you download the documents that look suitable for you, then change them so they fit what you need. You can always email us at contact@mycarebudget.org with your version and we'll add it.

We do not claim to be legal experts, we are people that run Personal health Budgets for ourselves or for a close family members.As such this wiki is to be viewed as a platform where we (and you!) can make documents publicly available for others to view and make use of them. More on our Disclaimers page here.
