Caregivers should receive compensation for providing full-time care of elderly parents and disabled children similar to foster care.

Why is this important?

Many people are finding that they have to take care of an elderly parent or handicapped child and cannot work while doing this. They will lose jobs, homes, status and their ability to also take care of themselves. I have a masters degree, but my mom who is 90 years old has many problems and cannot take care of herself. I don't have any income. She only gets $374 in social security and that's not enough to maintain our home and I know several other people in the same position. Congress should address this by providing some type of assistance to those in theses types of situations.
