Based on your profile, You live in Rhode Island, only 1 of 4 states that has temporary caregiver benefits. Please check the link below to check the portal for your state to see if you are eligible based on your state's requirements.

Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) benefits are subject to Federal and State income taxes. If you receive TCI benefits, you will receive a General Form (G-1099) at the end of the year beginning in January 2015 indicating the amount you received in TCI benefits during 2014, which will also be reported to the IRS.

TDI provides benefit payments to insured RI workers for weeks of unemployment caused by a temporary disability or injury. The TDI program, enacted in 1942, was the first of its kind in the United States. It protects workers against wage loss resulting from a non-work related illness or injury, and is funded exclusively by Rhode Island workers. Only four other states; New York, New Jersey, California and Hawaii, as well as the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, have a TDI program.
TDI customers can download the TDI/TCI application from our website.

Temporary Caregiver Insurance Program -
The new Temporary Caregiver Insurance Program (TCI) was signed into law on July 11, 2013. TCI will provide eligible claimants up to four weeks of caregiver benefits to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law or grandparent, or to bond with a newborn child, new adopted child or new foster-care child.

TCI claims will only be accepted as of January 5, 2014. You may file online or download a paper application; or you may call (401) 462-8420 and select option 1 for a paper application to be mailed to your home.

Would he qualify for nursing home care? PACE is the only thing I am aware of. Here's a link for it in NH.
