My dad is going to need more and more care as time goes on.I earn about 13.00 per hour at my current job and my commute is 25 miles/45 minutes each way. Dad has offered to pay me for his care, including my Cobra. I really dont see putting him in a nursing home or assisted living when it costs more than what I earn in take home pay. He has rental properties(which he needs help with in addition to his personal care) and would have to sell them to pay for a nursing home or assisted living, which could cause problems with my financial security later on. I do not have any children to care me in my old age. I do not want to keep a low pay job if it is going to cost me a house in the long run.I also might be able to return to my former job part time, not sure, havent talked to my former boss yet. It is about the same pay but it is a few miles from home. I am also concerned about the wear and tear on my car driving 50 miles a day, the car I have been driving is a 2004, so I am nervous about making the trip in the winter. My dad got sick right after I took this job in May. I never would have taken it if I knew he this was going to happen. I am just afraid it is going to cost me in the long run to keep this 13.00 an hour 45 minute commute each way job.
