Unfortunately, our system doesn't take very good care of people in situations like you are in. I'm so sorry you are going through this. You could try dialing 2-1-1 - like you would 9-1-1-. Many states have signed on to this help line service. The people who answer should be able to help you find anything your state may offer in aid. Otherwise, (or also) you could try your state Web site. Type in different search words - aging, health, financial assistance, etc. one at a time and see what comes up.

Good luck, my friend.
