This Week's Carenote - 10/26/10
I have been taking care of my mom since my dad passed away a year ago.  She has moved in with us.  Is there a way to put her on my insurance and get reimbursed as a caregiver?

You may be able to get reimbursement through a Family Caregivers' program, through your local Area Agency on Aging. Also, check withn them for details on Senior Centers or Adult Day Care (depending on your mom's health), and transportation to these. You might also ask about respite care, for times when you need a break from caregiving.
