My Mom and I were having lunch yesterday and I told her that I had recently joined this forum. When I explained what it was about and the question and answer bit of it she wanted me to pose this question: are any adult children who are providing care for a parent receiving pay by the parent for doing so and, if so, how much? That floored me! For the last four years I have been doing pretty much everything for my mom except feeding her. She cannot stand or walk unaided, cannot bathe or wash and set her hair, shop, cook, etc. (Y’all get the idea here.). She will be 90 soon and lives with my 68 year old brother who is mentally handicapped. So, I’m caring for him quite a bit also. Regardless, this really surprised me because the thought of receiving money for doing these things had not once entered my mind. However, I know she’ll be asking me if I’ve received any answers. There are four of us kids and I am the only one who provides care. If anyone here is being paid and has siblings, has it caused any problems with them for you? Although my mom is not a millionaire, she is financially comfortable. The fact is, so are her children. None of us are swimming in cash by any means but, we are all retired, receiving pensions and living within our means. We are very blessed in that regard. I have no intention of taking money from my mom but, like I mentioned above, she’ll be asking if I received any answers. So, thanks in advance, to those who reply!
