Going to burst a bubble here. Working from home can be like a job. A friend was a Nurse and worked from home for an insurance co. She had to clock in and out at certain times. She had breaks but she better not be long.

I think your best bet is trying for Medicaid homecare and see if Mom qualifies income wise. If she does, see how many hours you can get. If long enough, find a part-time job to start. I had one where I worked the busy times 10am to 2pm. My cousin worked in a drs office 3x a week fro 9 to 1. This will get you out. Put some money in your pocket and credit towards SS.

If you find you can find something to do from home, be sure its flexable. So you can work around Moms good and bad times. Do not use any of your money. 9x out of 10x this is a scam.

Have you ever worked from home while caring for someone? Because I have and it can be done. There are many remote jobs out there that don’t require you to be tied down to a phone & computer. Work from home jobs these days have great flexibility and with today’s technology, it’s pretty easy to do it while taking care of someone.

Thank you, I was actually thinking of freelance writing. I found a law firm that is seeking a content writer. So there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Checked your profile. Mom is only 40 and you have already taken care of her for ten years? When did she last see a doctor? You ask, in your profile, that mom should know her own body. Has she been diagnosed by a doctor?

Is mom on Medicaid? What programs do they have in Kentucky that mom qualifies for? You need to be preparing for your own retirement and getting paid to work to save for your retirement. You should not be paying household expenses if you are her caregiver, you should be paid for that.

What kind of work do you want and qualified to do? Check with the Area Agency on Aging to see if Medicaid has a program to pay you for caring for mom. If there is, it will be a small amount. Also contact social services to see what programs you and mom would be eligible for to get assistance.

Your profile says mom is getting in later stages and you never know what kind of day you are going to have. How would working at home be feasible? Maybe you made an error on mom's age, how old are you? 20ish? You are at the age you should be planning and preparing for your life.

I think it must be the OP who is forty, Glad. I still agree that all of these things are happening terribly early on.

There's a lot of things you can do from home. You can arbitrage. Whether that be financial instruments or Mandalorian action figures. Some people make a lot of money doing this from home. If you speak 2 languages, you can be a translator. You get sent documents to translate from one language into another. You can be an app developer. You can be a vlogger. The only limit is the limit of your imagination.

I agree! - only there's a bit more to being a translator than speaking two languages. That many companies do not admit this important (but expensive) fact explains a lot of the appliance instruction manuals we're all left scratching our heads over.
