Can you get paid to be caregiver for a family member?

brown9148 started this conversation

Things have changed drastically with mom.  She has started having seizures now and can't be left alone at all.  I was doing In-store demo's on a part time basis for a little extra money, but can no longer do that.  And desparately need the extra income to be able to pay my own bills.  I have heard that there is a way to get paid for being a full-time caregiver for a family member.  Anyone know who to contact for that information?

Also, mom get social security, but I was wondering if she could also draw disability?

hi there, i'm not sure if you can help or someone else posting on here can. my name is vince i live in Frederick MD. i'm 23 years old and i live at home with my mother and stepfather. my mother gets disability for having crohn's disease, at first it wasn't to bad but over the years it has gotten a lot worse. since the crohn's makes her constantly go to the bathroom and have her feeling under the weather. she gets extremely dehydrated almost to the point of passing out. we take her to the hospital when it gets to that point. she has fallen a handful of times because of how wobbly she gets from not drinking. last year she fell face first onto a space heater and was millimeters from losing her eye, luckily i was home and was able to call 911 to get her to the hospital. to this day i still have nightmares about her accident... also she gets to a point where she can't even speak and stutters all her words. since my step dad works during the day i'm terrified to leave the house until he gets home i dont trust her being alone anymore, which has kept me from getting a job. my mother needs constant reminder to keep drinking fluids so her condition doesn't worsen. in the times of her "episodes" she needs someone to cook for her do chores around the house, getting dressed sometimes, etc.. i've been taking care of my mother for the past few years now and just heard from my therapist i might be able to get a little income or benefits like health insurance from doing so if i became her caregiver. it would really help me out if anyone could give me a # to call or point me in the right direction. thank you very much for your time.

, Vince
