How to be paid for caregiving

Asked May 30, 2015, 5:23 PM EDT

My dad has recently diagnosed with dimentia, and is now bed bound and in adult diapers. Instead of trying to find the money to hire a caregiver, how can i be his caregiver and be paid? No one will take better care of my dad!

Thank you for your question. In general, the type of caregiving you're proposing is not eligible for payment through any type of public funding stream, state or federal. However, all states are different and there may be some private sources of funding in your area. I think the best place to start asking these questions is with the Area Agency on Aging that services you area. You'll find that information at https://www.azdes.gov/daas/aaa/
