Good day to all you wonderful people, I hope that life is being kind to you all today. My wife and I are planning for the future with Mum, IF, Dad passes before her. We are both very happy to have Mum stay with us for as long as possible and practical. The questions I have for you all are related to finance. Is it wrong to charge Mum "rent", "lodge", "board" every week for staying with us? If my wife has to give up work to care for Mum, is it wrong to charge Mum for this care? Carers Allowance & Attendance Allowance add up to about 22 hours at minimum wage rates! If we have to make adjustments to our home to accommodate Mum in the future, is it wrong to charge Mum for this work? Mum has plenty of money to fund her care, either at her own house or in a care home. However, I believe the quality of life Mum would have living with us, is probably going to be better for her than living on her own and having to pay for people to go in 3/4 times per day and stay over night or for her to be in a home. I just want to make it clear, that I would be prepared to spend my life savings to look after my Mum. I feel really bad for even thinking about "charging" Mum for taking care of her! Thanks for reading this and I look forward to reading your opinions.
