Can I get paid to take care of my parent?

Consumer Direction is a way of getting some of the home care you need that offers more choice and control over WHO gives your home care and HOW your care is given than receiving CHOICES services and not consumer directing. You actually employ the people who provide some of your home care services – they work for you instead of an agency. This means you must be able to do the things that an employer would do – like hire, train, and schedule workers.

It can’t be your mother, father, sister, brother, or grandchild.
