Hi, I have an ex-sister in-law that is struggling financially. She is living in assisted housing, receives disability and is broke. She does not have a job. She has offered to move in with my mother as a live-in care giver. She has done this work in the past for many years and has good references. We are planning to have a sit down discussion about the possibility, nothing final yet.
My mother is still living at home but has started to need help with meds and daily care. She recently hurt her shoulder and we have around the clock care now until she recovers. The current care givers are basically their to supervise, make sure she takes her meds, help her up if needed and take her to the restroom.
My question is, if we were to take my ex sister-in-law up on her offer can we do this in exchange for room and board? We could include all meals. We would need her approx 4 hours a day to supervise my Mom. This is as much a benefit for her as it is for my mom (and me). I want to be fair though and wanted to get your thoughts. Thanks.
