I am my mother's caregiver 24/7 but I will need to take two weeks off. I wish to use whatever finances she has to keep her at home as long as possible. I intend to start bringing somebody in at least once a week that I can get out and do something for myself. But when I hire somebody for 24/7 for 2 weeks will that be a allowable expense. She might need to apply for Medicaid in the future.
