Query this subject for additional answers. It's been previously asked and answered many times. Also check legal and money tab top of this website and it's answered there to.

Basically, have an employment agreement drawn up legally and signed by all parties. Be sure to include wages, job responsibilities, caregiver duties, respite care, vacation, expenses, reimbursement, hours to work, benefits, 401k, etc.

Remember you are giving up your employment, benefits for caregiving and therefore need to consider fair compensation, just like any employment. Don't just count on getting a loved ones property or estate...that could go fast if you eventually have to move them to skilled care.

Ps. Have an out clause in the contract in case it doesn't work out for you.
