Can I be licensed to care for an adult family member?
No, you cannot be licensed to care for a close relative. There is a process called certification which is for individuals who will be quitting or cutting back on their employment to care for an elderly (65 and over) relative. Having this certification allows you to receive government funds to cover the cost of care. This is not a license but approval from the county board.
