Find Care & Housing
I'm with book on this one. If you're living in her house and don't pay any bills, I wouldn't ask for a cent.

I see from your profile that you're caring for your grandmother. As she's family and perhaps you've volunteered to help her I'm not sure you can get paid. Perhaps someone in your state can shed some light on it.

If you are taking care of someone over 65, they are probably getting social security income every month and perhaps a retirement or annuity too. They can & should pay you for your services, the income is there. This should be done by a "personal services contract" so that is clearly establishes what your role is and what is expected and what to be paid. It also provides for this to be a legit employer / employee situation in case later on the elder applies for Medicaid. Medicaid looks to make sure there was no "gifting" or transfer of their assets and paying under the table for care can be viewed as that. Now they need to do a W-9 / W-2 & you pay taxes but it is a real job for real wages and also builds up you own SS for your future.

Talk to the owner/homeowner and discuss your pay as a housekeeper, personal assistant, etc... It would have been best if this was done in the beginning so that no misunderstanding occurs. The agreement/contract would have your wages, job description, etc...
