Tammy, I think what you have there is four men who figure it is a woman's job to do all that without pay. Welcome to the 1950's. The way out is to get a job and get out of there.

OK, what if the father took money off your rent and utilities instead of actual cash. Would that work?

GardenArtist, I just ready Tammy's profile, it is yet another case of a boyfriend having his girlfriend do ALL the work caring for a grandparent.... [sigh].

Tammy, if you want to be a caregiver and get paid, contact local agencies, find out what training and/or certification you need and pursue it. That's the way to get paid in that line of work. Doing it for free for a friend isn't. There are much better ways to live your life.

Read some of the posts here about unrelated caregivers who provided free care or nominally paid care for years; then the families turned against them.

Don't let yourself be used.

Tammy, how did you get yourself into this situation? Can't the person or the person's family pay you for being a Caregiver?

If the person has no funds, then it is time for Medicaid to take over and place that person into a continuing care facility. It's not fair that you do all that work and get zero salary, thus no money going into Medicare or Social Security. And what if you get injured on the job, would the patient have workman's comp to help you out?

Tammy, let me as delicately as possible ask why you would be willing to work for an unrelated person for free? I would think the better option for you would be to get a paying job.
