This is one of the most often asked question - and for good reason. Many of us quit work and can take better care of our parents for less money than Medicaid would have to pay a nursing home or than the family would have to pay for in-home care. However, our system is not yet very good. (Where's the Social Security for all those years you dont "work" even if you do get paid in some way?).

That said, please read this article for some ideas. And keep digging. Every state and every county has different programs. Good luck with your search.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
