I have been taking care of my mother for the last 2 years. I have been trained to do her peritoneal dialysis. I take her to all of her doctor's appointments and care for her when she is sick.

Majority of grown children do not get paid for caring for their elderly parent, unless the parent is financially able to pay from their own pocket. If a parent can afford to pay you, the parent might as well hire a certified trained caregiver… thus allowing you to keep or look for a full-time job so that your own retirement fund will grow .

If your parent qualifies for Medicaid, the State could allow a trained Caregiver from an Agency to come in to help a couple hours a day. There are some States that might pay a relative to care for an elder, it’s worth checking out, but it won't be full-time pay. Each State has their own rules, regulations, and programs.

Also, check with your local Council on Aging to see what programs they offer, such as an Aide coming to the house. https://www.agingcare.com/local/Area-Agency-on-Aging
