Family caregiver?
Want to become a caregiver?
With your very own hours, clients, and more?

Well, now is the best time to get started — there’s plenty of demand, few willing hands, and a couple of different ways you can approach this. If you love caring for the sick, the elderly, and those receiving other in – home family care, then this would be the job for you.

First of all, there’s a well – known Cash & Counseling Program, offered by Medicaid, which you ought to see if you and your family can qualify for. If you qualify, you can get paid to do the caregiving that you are likely already doing for your loved one.

The next thing you ought to consider is if you are able to opt – in to a home and community based service program.

If you’re caring for a loved one in your family who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, the next step must also not be missed, which is to see if your family member(s) is eligible to receive Veterans Aid, a huge benefit offered in the U.S., like in very few other countries. Take advantage of this benefit offered for service rendered.

You can also reach out to the family members themselves and see if they’re willing to pay you a little extra, for your troubles, as well. It can’t hurt to ask. Family is often very generous and supportive, and it can go both ways. Try it out!
