Hi Mona,
In most states, you are unlikely to get paid unless your mom is already on Medicaid and it has been determined that she needs a caregiver. If your mom only needs a caregiver because of the surgery, I'm sorry to say that you likely won't get paid. Generally, if you talk with the hospital doing the surgery, you can be directed to social services who can then set up some temporary services for your mom.

However, I don't want to discourage you from checking every resource available. The Area Agencies on Aging (www.n4a.org) can give you more information about your community resources. Also, your state website is a good resource for finding local help. It would be wonderful if you could get paid during this time, so go after it. I'm simply trying to be realistic from what I know.

Good luck,
Carol
