My "good" days

I’m 77 years old. I have various health problems. Currently, my only child, a grown son, does a wonderful job caring for me in order for me to stay in my home. I try to do as much as I can on my "good" days, but I feel the amount he does for me may need to increase in the future. I don't want to put it all on his shoulders. I’m hoping in the future that just because an elderly person has a family member helping, that we should also be able to have some help for them as well. Formal caregivers get paid, why shouldn't family caregivers get the same amount per hour?
