I’ve been unemployed the past few months due to Covid and have taken over my moms caregiving job. I’m trying to decide if it’s better to go back to work and pay caregiver or stay home and care for mom myself. The money washes each other out. Can I get paid to be her caregiver? She has been paying me some weekly while I’ve been home with her instead of the care giving agency. This is a very hard decision for me. Also I’m not sure at what point Medicaid can kick in. She barely has enough money to pay for funeral expenses.
