Getting paid for caregiving

I am currently taking care of my 93 year old grandmother who is bedbound, and I also take care of my two elderly parents who have health issues. In 2020 I quit my job at Target in order to take care of my family. My grandmother would like me to get paid for taking care of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I live in the state of Kansas

Your State is where you need to look - some states have programs to pay for caregivers (family or otherwise) who help those who are on MEDICAID.

If your grandmother and (2) elderly parents aren't on Medicaid, you are pretty much out of luck in getting the government to pay you.  The program is administered by the state under their Medicaid program.

The way some states work is that under their Home and Community Based Services, (HCBS) they will pay the MEDICAID beneficiary a specific amount (pretty low) and they can pay you out of these funds because it helps to keep them out of Nursing homes.
