I am the only unpaid caregiver for my parents. There is one paid caregiver who does same sorts of duties, I just want to have one day off.
There is no caregiving contract in place, and I don't want to take money from them now because they might need it later.
But, if there is something left, would I be entitled to deduct from their estate for all my documented hours of actual caregiving (not just going out to lunch with mom....)?
I suspect siblings would have a hissy fit, but they are most definitely not doing any caregiving, they all live out of state, and moreover they never even say thankyou to me, or ask me how I am doing. They hardly ever visit folks.
I am the POA and Executor.
