I had originally posted a thread in the Caregiver forum, but was advised to post one here since I'm seeking information specific to San Antonio. I would like to become a paid caregiver for both my mother and mother-in-law, but I'm having trouble finding programs or agencies that could help. If anyone has done this for a family member, would you please let me know where I can start? I did contact one agency (Bexar County Agency on Aging, I think is the name), but a recording came on stating the agency was temporarily closed. I'm at a loss as to where else to seek assistance, but I have a feeling I'll be learning a great deal as I go along. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

You might try calling the Alamo Area Agency on Aging http://www.aacog.com/DocumentCenter/View/9805

This is a general database of services in the area: https://www.211texas.org/211/

The state's services for aging and disabled: Help for Texans (DADS)

I don't know of anyone who is getting the assistance that you're asking about, but that doesn't mean it isn't possible.

AACOG is the best choice. There is a program, I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head, that they will walk you through the process of being reimbursed for several different things while caring for them.

Thank you, Hedgehog_Mom and Ashbeeigh. My mom had a neighbor whose daughter was receiving payment for being her caregiver. That neighbor has moved, so we couldn't ask what agency she used. I will contact the numbers provided. Much appreciated!

Surprised to find that one can be reimbursed as a caregiver for family members. Is this from state agencies, or private insurance? If I recall correctly BC/BS had a "no family members" clause for homecare expenses, but that was several years ago. Do you have to incorporate, meet any state requirements or register as a provider somewhere?

Family caretakers of certain qualified disabled war veterans can apply for a program that does pay them. My DH is totally disabled according to the VA, but he served in Viet Nam, and Va rules are that only family members of disabled veterans from more recent wars can be paid anything in that program.
