My mom is coming home after 10 months of hospitals and rehabs following breaking her hip, surgery, pneumonia and c-diff. She has been approved for Medicaid and home care... I've chosen self-directed care because I want to get paid for some of my care time. That will be possible, right?
I do also need to hire some aides from an agency as well, because I am disabled with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and can't do a lot of lifting, etc.. (My mom at this point can't walk or toilet alone, and has been approved for 40 hours of help a week.) Will the agency withhold taxes on my wages, pay me, and set the rate?? I read some good articles on here about choosing an agency, but not a lot about this self-directed care, so I appreciate your help!
