Find Care & Housing
You are able to receive payment from your parent, if you chose to charge and they can pay. This is allowed as an expense in Medicare look back, it needs to be reasonable and documented.

Government does not pay parents to raise children, nor children to care for parents. Caregiving is a lot of work, but it is not a government payroll job.

Low income individuals, regardless of care giving status are eligible for government assistance programs.
