My Mom's in assisted living, rather than paying them extra for exercising her, doing her laundry, and taking her to all appts. she pays me. It is great that I am able to spend time with my mom and help her out. My brother and sister say that they will need to give me a tax form for what my mom gives me. If this is the case I will have to get a job and not be able to spend the time my mother wants from me and limit what I can do to help her which will cost mom more money in the long run. Mom has said if I wasnt there everyday she would'nt want to live.. I am between a rock and a hard place.
