Re: benefits for caregivers?

I am not aware of any way to be paid to take care of your own mother. Medicare does not pay for custodial care, only for necessity nursing care if health requires it and then only for limited time.

Is your mother an only child? If she has siblings, maybe they would be willing to pay your mom to do their share of caregiving.

My parents paid my sister to take care of them for a period of time. This was only fair since the other 3 children could not do their share.
