Taxpayer's Mom is 84. Needs care. They originally contracted through agency and signed statement that caregiver is responsible for own taxes. Taxpayer's mom is NOT claiming payments as expense.

Does Mom need to issue 1099-Misc to caregiver for payments made if Mom is not claiming payments made?

Individuals aren't required to issue 1099s.  Hopefully you weren't planning on some extra beer money by preparing the 1099 for her 🙂

Wouldn't Caregiver be a household employee of Mom?

hmmmm.....i wondered that too, Rick. Caregiver, from what I was told, signed a contractor statement stating as such. Re: household employee was her concern. I thought since the mom was not claiming anything, we would not need to file 1099. But Household is def a possibility.
