It depends.  You still are able to claim the dependent, and may be able to claim the expenses as well.  Please see this FAQ on the Child and Dependent Care credit:  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301418

If you choose to claim the credit, you will list the expenses you paid.  You will have to list the Child Care Facility separately from the Family Member.  In addition, you will need the Social Security Number of the relative (as long as it is not a minor child of yours) as they will need to report the amount on their taxes as well.
