I have been caring for my dad with Parkinsons for 6 years. He has long term insurance that we have not used because the policy will not allow me, his daughter whom he lives with, to get any reimbursement for caring for him. ALL BECAUSE I LIVE AT THE SAME ADDRESS. REALLY? I understand that their are always some that will take advantage of the elderly but why punish everyone? Why not offer a short caretaker program (or bonding) to approve those immediate relatives so insurance, medicare and others would have to offer some sort of reimbursement. My father has a trust issue with someone he does not know. An agency even if reimbursed has not proved the best because some groups do not do the best at background checks. I have used vacation and FMLA for caretaking. I am an only child and do not mind caretaking but would appreciate help. Now laided off you either lie or you will not be hired. I am looking at part time work and Obamacare to get me through. Change the rules, laws something to make it esier for those that want to help!
