This Week's Carenote - 04/24/12

I just discovered your Web site and thought how nice it is.  I have a 30-year-old daughter I have been taking care of for 12 years.  She has an annuity and I was her conservator.  I was trying to receive more money from her account and it was taken away from me.  I have no income of my own.  Is there a way I can get help and bill my daughter’s trust?  My hands are tied.  I have a large second mortgage.  I wish I could find some help.  I don't want to give her up and there are no in home services available in my area.  I am currently applying for Medi-Cal and SSI.

Rebecca, you would want her on MediCal just for the medical unless the trust account is over 4 million dollars. If they used a court to remove you as the manager of your daughters money THEN that would have been the perfect time to ask the Judge for a court approved payment plan. You can petition the court to ask for reasonable wages, but remember; then you are subject to inspection. Working for a care agency removes a lot of problems, suspicion, and innuendos. The trust has to file an annual report with the court you could file a bill with the court for your services. Be sure to do lots of investigation so you know exactly what your daughter would have to pay if you were not around. PS your mortgage is your problem, not your daughters.... little sympathy from the court...but lots of suspicion.

I would recommend getting her on the MediCal program and then checking if you can hire in to a home care agency and be paid for care you provide through that program.
