Find Care & Housing
Try asking the Area Agency on Aging. If Texas has any kind of plan for this, I don't know about it, but I haven't really researched it. So if you do find out anything, come back on here and let us know, ok?

You might check the DADs website?

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone who is home caring for their parents/in-laws/grandparents/aunts/ uncles/spouse/ sibling/child could get paid for the time they put in.... but that alone would bankrupt the States and the Federal government within months.

If your in-laws have funds, have them pay you directly. You would need to set up an employment contract with them.

If your in-laws can qualify for Medicaid, there are some benefits such as someone coming to the house once in awhile to help for an hour or two. Some States have "Cash and Counseling" programs, so check into that. California does offer some payment for a grown child to do caregiving of their parents/in-law. Some States might pay, but the grown child cannot live with the parents/in-law, etc. As you can see each State has their own rules and regulations. It doesn't hurt to see what is available.
