I need some help and aside from searching the website, I'm getting little to nothing to go on. My mom has MS and is currently in an Oregon Hospital, because she broke her hip a couple of days ago. She fell this time last year and ended up reciving a blood transfusion due to a blood clot in her leg. At that time she was released to a terrible home where she finished her physical thereapy to be well enough to go home and be with dad and have in home care come regularly. This didn't last long for my mom and I'm not certain why.
My question to you is, can I become her care giver and be paid to do so? I couldn't do it and work as well. I have a family and Fibromyalgia myself. My dad does it all right up until this week while she's been in the doctor. I don't know if Dad ever looked into being paid to be the caregiver, but I do know that it's getting to the point that he couldn't do it all 24/7 by himself.
Does anyone know what is involved. Who is elligible to be a caregiver (is there a class) how much could one receive for taking care of family member. The thought of someone else mistreating or even just doing something that I should be doing for her as her only daughter kills me.
Any words of exerience you can provide... I'd so appreciate it.
