POA, Durable POA, etc. and Full-time caregiver for elderly mother who lives at my home in a renovated mother in law suite. I am on the bank account she has been paying me a very modest salary from for several years. 8 years care with last 3 being modestly paid. In the past she had me help with bills and write all of her checks and she would sign them. Now diagnosis of moderate dementia, blind and advanced Parkinsons disease and of course much more care involved. She cannot be left alone and her Drs have put it in writing that she needs assistance and care 24/7. Do I just pay myself an increase and keep records? Logs justification etc. Have hired someone to start coming in to help 2 days a week for half days, but honestly not sure she has much longer to live. So, it would mean hospice palliative or hospice at home next- so that kind of excludes the Medicaid spend down idea as she will remain home. Just wasn't too clear on exact rights when it is myself? I thought that is why she added my name to her account originally. I need some sort of compensation and am not talking about huge amounts. She has enough assets to pay for care. There is a non-involved sibling (vulture) who has chosen not to be involved and made it very clear does not want to help.
