This is my first time posting so bare with me. I have recently taken FMLA from my job since my mother is on Hospice due to her COPD and congestive heart failure as is expected to pass with in the next three months, and I am her primary care taker. I help her with everything such as I prepare her meals, give her medication, help her to the bed side toilet, check her blood sugar and give her a bath every other day. I do the laundry so she can have clean sheets, pillow cases and house coats. I have four children that I also need to take care of and since I am not receiving any monies from my employer is there any services that can help me financially. I am in Oregon. She depends on me for everything, she is unable to do anything without my help. Any information would be helpful! Thank you
