Hunnie, wouldn't it be nice if everyone who is home caring for their parents/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 parents 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. Some States might pay, but the grown child cannot live with the parents, etc. As you can see each State has their own rules and regulations. It doesn't hurt to see what is available.

WE have a Home Instead center, can you get a job at a place like that and then work for your parents?

If your parents can afford to pay you, you can get paid that way. Your question has been asked many many times on this site. I have never read an answer that includes, "I'm being paid..."

Medicaid says it best and clearest, I'm afraid. "Caregiving by family is considered a gift." And, for THAT reason, even if mom and dad CAN afford to pay you, if you don't do it right, it will be a real problem for them should either go on Medicaid.
