I have been taking care of my mom for six years now. I would like to go to work for many reasons however she has gotten worse. She is using six sometimes more depends and bed pads. Her pension is no longer enough. How can I get paid for taking care of her?
Another thing to keep in mind is that no state will pay more in in-home care, than it would cost them to pay a facility. So if her needs are "too expensive" for the state to perform at home, or if the state determines that she is not safe at home, they will only offer facility care. And that facility will not necessarily be in your city--I have more than one friend whose mom went on MEDICAID and was transferred to nursing home.care sseveral hours away from them.
