I have stopped working, relocated myself and my mother to NH so I can help and assist my mother. She is 82, on oxygen and fragile. With my help she lives a very comfortable life and able to get out to all her Dr. appts. go shopping etc.. The only other choice is assisted living home and the resources aren't there for a nice place and she really doesn't want to do it.
Since I quit work there is no unemployment and I have lost my medical insurance/benefits recently. She makes just enough from social security and retirement and we are always looking to save money. The savings for Medicare vs Assisted living home must huge.
My question is... are there any funds, grants or medicare monies available for doing what I am doing?

yes, contact your local welfare office, and sign your mom up for chore service, if she is low income, or check with your local aerea agency on aging.

Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to get paid as a caregiver. There is some assistance available, but it varies widely by state.

Read this article on getting paid for caregiving: https://www.agingcare.com/135476

Then check out the Paying for Care section of the website. This link will take you there: https://www.agingcare.com/Money-Legal/1173/Paying-for-Care/

Hang in there, and visit the site often to talk with other caregivers who are going through similar challenges.
