I live with my 82 year old mother. She has a few medical problems that prevent her from living her life without someone's help. She has Short Term Cognitive Impairment which has gotten worse, dizziness & balance problems which have gotten worse, and she falls sometimes.
I was told a couple of years ago, by a social worker, that I could be paid for being a "caretaker" to my mother. I have never checked into it. But now, because I sometimes am not able to work because I have to stay and help my mom, I started wondering about it.
Does anyone know about this?
