Does anyone know if in Connecticut there is respite care or small housekeeping assistance for situations like mine? I am living with my mother in her home so that she can remain there herself. She has dementia, asthma, pacemaker, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis. I do have the occasional adjunct instructor gig which doesn't pay much and am also a full time self-representing artist. She cannot be left alone for any stretch of time. It's getting harder and harder as she deteriorates. Her income is social security. Mine is erratic at best.
I tried to get oil heating payment help last year but the state had run out of money. *sigh* I am tired of help being dangled enticingly but when I reach out, there's nothing but smoke, mirrors and misdirection.
