If Mom has assets/income and can afford to pay you, she should. Have a personal care agreement drawn up spelling out what she is paying and what you are providing.

If Mom can't afford to pay for the care she needs, help her apply for Medicaid. Daily care would probably come under the Elderly Waiver program of that assistance. Once it is determined what the financial aid program will pay for, then you can go about being the person who gets paid for providing it.

I forgot to add that the doctor's found a tumor in October. Have to take her back to the doctor's talking about removing it. Which is a very big concern cause she's soooo tiny.
