Find Care & Housing
Well, I looked into it and as far as I can tell, there's none for me.
I can't work because mom wants me 24/7.
If I get a job she will "move".... (that would be a feat, considering she could not live without my help anymore and I am the reason she is able to live in her own home at this point.)
She has money in the bank, has medicare, AARP RX preferred, United Healthcare. She is very comfortable but will not 'pay' her own daughter for doing what a daughter 'should be doing for her mother'.... so while she says she doesn't want to be a burden to me, she has no clue how difficult it is on my end. And the crappy part is that unless she would pay me herself, there is no help for me so that I can be here and take care of her without going broke.
I am on her checking accounts as co-owner but I can't (and would never) touch a red cent of that money because IT IS NOT MINE.
So it's a catch 22 for me.

Unless the one you are a caregiver for is medicaid eligable, I wish you luck. Or if the person is a veteran , Aid and Attendance. Other than that it is your caregivers assets.

What have you already looked into on your own? What kind of care is needed, what insurance or other resources are there?
