How to get paid paid for caring for my sister?

Asked by

My sister lives with me and I have alot of concerns about leaving her alone and trying to go back to work. She has many major health issues, but the one that concerns me most is her memory. She had a stroke in Oct. 2008. She has had 3 open heart surgeries (2003-2005-2007). I would like to know what kind of assistance is available and how to recieve it.

shirley1957, is your sister on any programs that provide financial assistance? Does she receive a disability income? Is she eligible for any programs?

Perhaps the first step is to contact the county's Social Services agency and ask for a needs assessment. Once Sister is eligible for caregiving assistance, then look into how you can be that caregiver.
