Hi, I am an LVN I work in Home care, my mother is legally disabled and has severe arthritis she uses a wheel chair, my mom is on medical can I be my moms nurse in a Home care setting? I live in Los Angeles CA.
I know that a family member can be paid to be a caregiver or home health aide in California but I would imagine it would depend on whether she would otherwise qualify for skilled nursing and who pays for her medical care. The state is really tightening up it's payment for skilled nursing hours these days.
I believe the state contracts with agencies rather than paying licensed nurses directly for both case management and in-home skilled nursing hours.
