Thanks for your reply. The $150.00 a weeks was for the following:
A. To be on call day or night if they needed us. Many times we got called out at night.
B. Take dad to the store while one of us watched Mom. She could not be alone.
C. We took them to the doctors often.
D. My wife is a RN, she would check blood presure and their medicine often.
E. Help clean the apartment often.
F. Help them with any problems.
G. We would be there 9 to 18 times a week. I would say 12 hours was average. I now need to put dad in a nursing home and mom is already in a nuring home. Will they have a problem with me collecting this money.
