Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Unfortunately no. There's no medical expense deduction allowed for an unpaid family caregiver. If there was a payment involved you would actually come out worse as he would have to pay both Social Security tax and income tax on the payments and then you would only gain an itemized deduction.
Sorry I don't have a better answer. I've experienced the same thing myself in my own family so I know how unfair it seems.
