My husband passed away 12 years ago. His brother agreed to pay me $600 per month. I clean MIL's house along with accidents bowel/bladder. I give her meds, feed her at least 1 meal a day prepared at my home. I take her to all dr appts, deal with getting home health and communicate with them. Check on her at least 3 times daily, do grocery shopping (she is also diabetic). Basically I take care of all needs. This consumes my life. I have 2 grandchildren I seldom get to see as they live 3 hours away round trip. Due to worrying about her falling, which has happened multiple time, I can’t spend the night with my only daughter. Her sons live 15 hours away. They are paying me $600 per month. She can afford to pay me $1000 as she is putting more than that in savings every month. Is it fair to ask for that amount? What do others get paid? I am her only caregiver.
