Anyone a paid caretaker for an elderly relative?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I am curious. I have had so many people tell that I could be getting legally paid to do what I am doing for my great grandma and I do need the money, but don't want her care to suffer in my absence. Is anyone here paid to care for their elderly family member? How did you go about it? Were there any trainings you had to take? Did you pay for the trainings out of pocket and if so how much did it cost? Thank you.

IF a relative can get paid for providing childcare, there is no reason why you cant get paid.

I do know that a relative childcare provider must be licensed through the state. But it isn;t hard. CPR, background check and a 4 hour class in my area.

I was working child care until earlier this month. I have CPR, first aid, and MAT training (which allows me to provide the children meds with parental permission) all current. Plus all the other trainings my job made me take.

 My cousin takes care of her grandmother. She works through an agency but the insurance pays my cousin though

Was she working for the agency before she had to care for her grandmother? Do you know? Thanks for the reply though.

You can receive payment for that I'm sure. I got paid for taking care of my mum after hip surgery

Who did you contact for payment? Medicare or SS or the state?
