I have a question. Can a person be employed to provide caregiving for a relative? I mean if a person needs someone to live with them, provide meals, lawn and house maintenance can they employ a relative to do that. Will the relative then be able to fill out a 1099 self employment form, take care of his/her own taxes, social security and everything else? I am unemployed and thinking of relocating but my father is 80 and does need such services. He is unwilling to relocate but jobs are very hard to find where I am.
Does this sound logical? In order to preserve some of the money, what is the best advice to do w/ the home he owns jointly? How can we legally "hide" some of his money for their children? Help, plz
My email address is email@example.com please email me and let me know. My cousin is taking care of her mom with alshimers and she would like to know too.
Thank You so much.
You can also contact your State representatives which should be listed in the Government section of your telephone book. They may be able to direct you to the appropriate state agency. Many States are facing financial issues so there may or may not be funds available but it doesn't hurt to look into it.
If any of you are able to find out information on this issue, it would be helpful if you would post back to the list.
If a parent has no income, I have heard it is possible to be reimbursed from the state but I am not familiar with how one goes about this.
