Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Contact your state Medicaid office to start the process since that is the program that handles this. It is not handled by Social Security.

You can choose your own caregiver (your daughter) and she will be paid.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

I'm on Medicare...do they cover this as well?
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 26 days ago

Medicare does not cover in home caregivers.

You will apply through your state Medicaid office.
