Majority of non-agency caregivers do not get paid for caring for their elderly patient, unless the patient is financially able to pay from their own pocket. If a patient can afford to pay you, the patient 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 patient qualifies for Medicaid, the State might allow a trained Caregiver from an Agency to come in to help a couple hours a day. There are some States that pay a relative to care for an elder, it’s worth checking out, but not all States have this. 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
