Isn't the OP saying that SHE is being made POA? Isn't there a conflict in a poa being paid as caregiver? Or am I missing something here . And yes, I would have skedaddled out of this family drama long ago. I guess grandpa has or says he has big bucks. I've seen this script in my family long ago, and in the end, there was no money. But a lot of people danced to the pipe of a very evil lady for many years.

Chick White: Medicaid won't pay a live in family member, but this is different. This a private agreement within the family. If all agree.

Hourly wages are different from one state or county to the next. I live in Los Angeles and $13.00 an hour is not much. Maybe in her area as well? Actually a sign twirler makes $11.00 for zero skills and no responsibility so it is worth it to pay a bit more for a good caregiver IMO.

robskirocks3,here's your question from back in August. There is just too much going on to figure out how to help you. You really need to see an *Elder Law* attorney. https://www.agingcare.com/questions/respect-grandpas-wishes-and-be-hated-171190.htm

No cash for caregiver who is a relative in AL at least that's what I have been told by a senior citizen's agency. Make sure you talk with a second lawyer or someone who is familiar with this law. It seems to me that it depends on what state you are in. Not in AL, can a daughter who is the only caregiver and POA can actually be paid. If I am wrong, please someone correct me..

Let's do the Math $13 per hr x 12 hrs x 30 days a month= $4680 per month, less payroll taxes. $56,160 per year. Assisted Living will be cheaper. It may not fly with whoever is signing the POA. If this has to go before a Judge, he may just bang the gavel on your head. They have no sense of humor.

And the POA paying herself quite well!

I wouldn't say that $13/hour is the going average for caregiver duties. Maybe $9-$10/hour and no overtime. There is no overtime for professional caregivers.

Um, agreed that God is great, but what does the attorney say about POA paying herself to do home care? You need to make absolutely certain that this is legal.
