I live in NJ. I have been living with my invalid mother since March 2018 as her primary caregiver. I have not been able to work, as this is my full time job. I receive 16 hours of respite per week. I read that I can be paid even though we are within the 5 year lookback for Medicaid. If I can, what kind of legal document needs to be drawn up and does an attorney need to be involved? If this is so and I have proof of residence and responsibility since March can I get back pay?
