Hi there necesims1. There are lots of discussions on this site about compensating those of us who are caring for parents, but I have yet to see where there is any financial support for us. The support comes in the form of medicare/medicaid-paid providers. If your dad has either of the above and if he qualifies, he can get some help. It may be a provider, it may be a nurse, it may be therapists. It all depends on your dad's medical condition, what his doctor orders, and what he qualifies for. Much of this available help depends on the state your Dad lives in. Maybe if you could give us some more information, as in what kind of help he needs, and someone else might be able to give you a better answer.
