Can I get paid by the State for taking care of my mother who has Cancer?
I had to quit my job to care for my mom who has stage 4 pancreatic cancer and I was wondering if the State had a program to pay me to take care of her. If anyone knows anything about the State of California rules relating to this I would really appreciate the input. Thank you!

I don’t see why it should be the taxpayer’s responsibility to pay you to take care of your own mother. That is what FMLA and unemployment is for.

i think you need to get licensed before you get any money..

I am almost certain that you get some sort of payment

In the uk I get cares allowance- ask her doctor
Disability Living Allowance is what the ill person claims themself

There may be some help for you but it would depend on the state. I would think California would have such a program.There also may be something from SSI that you could get on,

I think only your Mother would recieve medicade and state benifits. Check with your Social Security and unemployment office.....

jamie c
yes you get some sort of money for carring for her like benafits. sorry your mum has cancer.

Here is a link for the State of California's assistance to people on SSI. I am not sure if you qualify to be paid, but they do have additional assistance for your mother.

Make sure you specifically check the provision titled: "Nonmedical out-of-home care, living in the household of another." I am not an expert, but I believe that clause applies to your situation. Good luck and sorry to hear about your mother's problems.


If your mom is on SSI or eligible for that program, then you could possibly get some payment for caring for her. Check with your county department of human services or social services. It will have a name something like that. There would be a department that could discuss this with you.

Here in Canada, you can!
It should not be different there!

Sorry for your Mom and you!
Take care of you too!
God bless!

You can in the UK so i dont see why it would be different there

There is the in-home supportive services program but your mom would have to qualify based on financial need. Check also with EDD to see if unemployment for family medical leave is possible.

I work for Medicaid in NJ.

At one time our state had a program that allowed patients to hire and pay for their own home health care (which could include a family member) But, this took many months to arrange and it was really meant for chronic cases---like those who had Quadraplegia.

Hospice Services is probably the best way to go at this time. They will provide home care and nursing services. You can arrange this through a hospital or a local Hospice agency. The cost are covered by Medicare and most insurance plans.

Your best bet is to contact your local Board of Social Services/ County Welfare Agency and ask what, if any programs your mom would qualify for.
