Patricia, if you end up paying out of your own pocket for someone to care for your parents while you work or look for work, you should at least be eligible to deduct some of the expense on your taxes (irs.gov, search for dependent care credit). Hope that helps a little bit!

Patricia, check to see if your father can qualify for Medicaid. The State might allow a trained Caregiver come in to help for a couple hours. Also check to see if your State is one of those States that has a “Cash and Counseling” program to help you out, it‘s worth looking into. Note that each State has their own rules, regulations, and programs.

Also contact your county agency on aging for programs such as Case Management, Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Care, housing, care referrals, etc,... go to the website link below.... click on your State.... now click on the city/county. https://www.agingcare.com/local/Area-Agency-on-Aging

Contact your local agency that assists with seniors and disability situations. There are some organizations that help pay a family member who has to quit a job to take care of parents or siblings. In my area they are called "Society's Assets".

Patricia, sorry I am not familiar with at-home computer work. There are some posters on here who do work from home, but it is becoming very difficult for them as their Mom, Dad, or both are needing more and more attention.

Vast majority of grown children are not paid as caregivers unless their parent(s) can pay them from their own pocket.... if your parents can pay you, set up an employment schedule showing how many hours per week, the wages per hours, and who will be paying the payroll taxes.

If your parents can afford to pay you, they could easily hire a professional caregiver so that you can return to your job. You are losing an awful lot of money, and a lot of benefits when you quit work. Hope you have health insurance.

I have to care for Dad 24/7 and unavailable but will rejoin the work force in time. Any home work from computer that I can help offset expenses?

With unemployment you need to be available for interviews and for employment if a company offered you a job. Would that be an option for you, or are your future plans to continue to be a full-time caregiver for your parents?
