My sister in law is intending on quitting her job to take care of her mother full time. (she makes about $350 a week part time) It's needed. My husband and I are in full agreement that this is necessary. Mother needs more care. To offset expense and the lack of income we told her to have mother contribute to the cost of household expenses, mortgage, heat, or call it rent, etc. We also want the mother to pay the daughter a weekly stipend for care. This is so the daughter does not have to ask her husband for money because she no longer works. Is this set up going to get us in trouble with Medicare? Is this going to cause an issue with the 5 year look back with Medicare?
