This Week's Carenote - 11/11/09

Hello - I hope you can help me with this. I am currently the care giver/companion for an older gentleman. He has COPD & occassionally coughs until he passes out. His wife is a long haul truck driver & is rarely home, so she has me staying with him for safety sake (the last time he passed out, he fell & hit his head on a table). She would like to be able to deduct room, board & any monies paid to me on her tax return. 

Are there any special rules/regulations pertaining to this situation? Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated as I have no idea where to start with this.

Thank you for your time.
