Child has to provide care for at least 2 years? I have heard that some states allow this and some don't. My situation is that I live with and care for Mom 24/7 (I telecommute in order to do this). She has dementia and I have a statement from her physician that she does require help with all activities of daily living.
I have provided this care for actually much longer than 2 years (8). I also have a letter from my sister stating that Mom agreed that I should get the house if I moved in to take care of her. This was of course when she just had mild cognitive impairment -- it has since progressed to advanced dementia so of course she has no recollection of this. Is the statement from my sister enough to prove that's what Mom wanted? I do realize I will need to see an elder care lawyer sooner rather than later, but just hoping someone here knows if California abides by the caregiver exception. TIA.
