My Mom has Type 2 diabetes and my dad has half his face removed on the left side, I do everything for them. My mom has had 2 surgeries on her back. She has had both knees replaced and her Gallbladder taken out.She wears a brace on her right foot due to a drop-foot. She has Type 2 Diabetes and takes insulin 6 to 10 times a day and 10 different medications a day, some 2 to 3 times a day plus Humalog and Levemire (insulin). I give her meds and shots to her and I cook and clean, I do the laundry and make sure she gets to and from her appointments. I take care of her 100%. My Dad takes blood thinners and he has almost lost the sight in his right eye due to sun cancer. They had to remove a good portion of his face on the right side. I make sure he takes his meds and I cook for him too. I make sure he gets to and from his appointments. On the 3rd of each month my dad and I go and pay their bills.
I am 43 years old and I am a single parent. I have 2 small children at home Taylor is 10 and AJ is 8, I take care of them also. You can say I juggle a lot or I have a lot on my plate. I say both.
So my Question is can I get paid for being their caregiver and where do go to get paid?
