Hi I am a new member on here. My Mom has alzheimers and I am considering taking a career break to look after her in the daytime for as long as I am able to do so. My Dad passed away last November and he along with my brother and I were her reason for living which she readily admits. She is so lost and lonely at the moment and with all that alzheimers brings is not in a great place. I have my own regrets at not spending enough time with my father in recent years due to a very busy job and my own family life. Caring for my Mom for as long as I was able to do so would hopefully improve her emotional life, allow her to see more of me and her grandchildren and enable her to get out and about more as I would be able to transport her to various activities. We have discussed this and she is willing to provide some income for me. My real question therefore is 'does anyone have any experience of this and if we were to try and set up some kind of salary for me, where would I go for advice and would I have to register as a career and how would taxation work etc as I would like to do it all legally etc' I would also be interested to hear from anyone who has done this as to what it may be like on an emotional level for both me and Mom. Thanks in advance for any replies.
