Yes you can get paid thru a caregivers contract, which is the parents money . You have to have the POA draw it up and sign it on what you will do and how much you will get paid. (average is $15 per hour 8-10 hours a day) Some on this site receive Aide and Attendent funding if he spouse was in the service . I know this sounds strange to get paid for your parent BUT if your parent owns a house or has any money whatsoever and you do all he work, at her death the money will usually be split equally amongst the sibings. Is that fair that they do nothing and get equal amounts? Take care of this now with the POA and if that person doesnt agree, then tell that POA to take care of your Mother, their mind will change quickly. Best of Luck.
