I was asked by my parents to move into their home and help care for them back in 2006. I was not compensated for services provided. Can I bill the estate for being a full-time live-in caregiver for the past 11 yrs? Both parents had made a verbal commitment that there would be enough money from the sale of their home, I would be able to purchase a small home for myself. I felt that was adequate compensation for being their caregiver and not working outside the home. Here is the unfortunate part. My sibling who has DPOA has no intention of honoring this. Their house was put on the market, sold and my notice to vacate all happened over a 5 week period. My brother took my Dad to live with he and his wife, while I was left to pack up the house that my parents resided in for 40 yrs., and I am now homeless. My parents never felt the need to change their will because they believed that their Son having DPOA, he would do the right thing. My Mother passed away in 2012 and my Father is 93 yrs. old. It was an honor to be able to care for them, but I now feel very vulnerable.
