I am on Social Security and my daughter has been very ill and had 9 surgeries in the last 6 years and is permanently disabled. I have been taking care of her for a long time and not able to work because of this. How can I become her caretaker and possibly be paid to do so without losing my small amount of Social Security. I’ll be 70 in a few days. How can I become my disabled daughter's caretaker?

There is a program that allows qualifying applicants to be paid for being the caregiver of a disabled family member. Given your age and low income you are probably pretty likely to qualify. Go to the website of your state and search for "Financial Aid for Family Caregivers." That should help you find your state's name for the national Family Caregiber Support Program.You can learn a little bit more about the program in this review of And you can check out Grants for Seniors to be sure you are receiving all the benefits you can as a senior.
