I am 62 and totally disabled. Can my wife/caregiver be paid by anyone to stay at home and take care of me?

If you contact your county's Area Agency on Aging (for age 60+),you can ask for a FREE assessment to see if you qualify for free or low-cost services. They may have a caregiver's program, which may provide a small stipend. Or you may qualify for a program in which an aid would come in for several hours a week, to take care of some of the things your wife may have difficulty in handling. They will also provide you with lists of resourecs in your community.

I am interested in the same inforation about my mom. She cares for my 89 year old Grandmother. I would also like to know if she can be paid somehow.

You may want to look into applying for Veteran's aid and attendance if you are a veteran. You don't have to be receiving your medical treatment from VA to apply. Its worth the effort. Contact a local veterans service officer to see if you qualify. Many people miss out on this benefit.

I agree with Bette. I have a few contacts in my area that provide grant monies to caregiver of individuals with memory problems. Although that is not the concern you possed, I think that there would be similiar monies out there. I would also suggest contacting any national or local organizations that work with individuals such as yourself.

I have a disabled adult son that I am caring for. Up until recently I have been on a program that paid me to care for him, instead of having an aid come to our home. I was just advised yesterday that the state will no longer allow family members to be paid to do this. This is a shame, this service was very helpful to us, now I don't know what we are going to do. I had quit my job to get on this program.

Caregivers sometimes do Free Homecare Services for an exchange of Room and Board to include meals. However,this is for a personal discussion with a caregiver you have in mind. Schedules,time, case etc. are some of the topics you have to share to obtain a mutually beneficial relationship.
