I will have to quit my job to take care of her and I need information as to any program that could pay me to take care of her.

Don't quit your job just yet. There are many programs out there that your parent might qualify for. How are your parents finances?
What are living arrangements. What level of care does your parent need? Some states have a long term care program that will pay you or someone else to be a caregiver but this depends on your parents income and need for aid; and they usually only pay for a few hrs a week.
I pay for a hired caregiver with my dad's SS check. He also is allowed 10 hrs a week under our state plan. He has Alzheimers and can't be left alone.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
