I have taken care of my disabled sister for 5 years in my home.Two things have happened recently. Need advice.
One- Ohio switched from the waiver to Passport program. Passport doesn't pay me enough to continue to miss work for doctor appointments, feeding, cleaning, prescription pickup etc. Two - a pension buy out that I was not aware of has been sent to me for my sister. It is 20,000 before tax. Can I legally except this and pay for funeral, clothing, housing, food etc.? She is on Medicare/Medicaid. I have made numerous calls and cannot get a straight answer. I'm in Ohio. Thanks
