Hello, I have an elderly parent. I would like to hire somebody for four hours a day to help with bathing and feeding my mother, clothing my father, and doing light housework. What forms do I need to fill out? If I pay her under the table what could be the possible consequences?

Sorry, we are a forum of caregivers. We share our experiences and try to help each other. We are from the US, Canada, UK and other countrys.
To find caregivers you need to look in your area. Your County Office of aging may be able to help. If finances are a problem, Medicaid may help.
