I stopped working last year to care for my 86 year-old father who is ill.
My mom stays at home 24/7 to take care of my grandma. My grandma is disabled and chronicaly sick. Can my mom recieve any money from the goverent since she can not work outside the full time job she already has? My grandma gets social security but uses it to pay her bills from hospital visits and medication.
Can you get compemsated for taking care of an elderly/disabled parent in their home? I would like to quit my regular job and just stay home to care for my father but cannot afford to unless I can get some form of income. Can you help? I live in the state of Wisconsin.
I heard with the new stimulus bill, that anyone who has to quit work to care for an elderly parent can draw up to 20 weeks unemployment. I know that usually if you voluntarily quit your job you cannot draw unemployment. Not only am I having to quit my job, I’m having to relocate from Virginia to Florida. No regrets though, it’s my mama. Just wondering if anyone else heard about this? 20 weeks of unemployment compensation would be a blessing.
I have been told there is now a Federal Law that entitles a child to receive the house of their parent if they take care of their elderly parent in that home for only two years. I am seeking additional information on this law, if indeed there is such. Also whether I can access a copy of the details online. What if that parent lives for another ten years? Need this information to help protect my parent.
An attorney has assured me there is a Federal Law that would back one of my siblings taking my mother’s house after caring for her in her home for two years. How unfair can that be? More expensive than a nursing home. So far no one has come up with where I can verify this Federal Law.
How feasible is it to care for an elderly parent full time? My main questions is this: Would I be compensated for it to justify quitting my job? Where on the web could I find out more about this?
Another question I thought of: is this: Is it possible to be trained on his medical needs if they are not too involved?
BTW, I bring home about $300.00 clear a week now.
