Q) My Mom is 81 and has breast cancer, rssential tremors and has had mini strokes and is home bound except going to Dr. I’ve had to quit My job to take care of her. Can I get compensated for doing this? I also live with her.

A) According to AARP – As of October 2015, all 50 states and the District of Columbia offer Medicaid waiver self-directed long-term services and supports (LTSS) programs that allow qualified individuals to manage their own care — meaning that people can hire and fire their own caregivers. Some states permit the care recipient to hire a family member to provide care. Eligibility, benefits, coverage and rules differ from state to state. Some programs pay family caregivers but exclude spouses and legal guardians. Others will pay care providers only if they do not live in the same house. Medicaid home care benefits also depend on the Medicaid program in which you are enrolled.
