I am 65 and disabled since 2006 (back injury/heart disease). My 59 year old husband had a massive stoke and is paralyzed on the left side I am his sole caregiver 24/7. I recently was hospitalized 2 days for my heart. I had a difficult time finding someone to stay with him during the day. my son stayed at night. I also have many dr. appointment. is there any benefits available to help me hire day care for him when I have to be away? I have been doing this for a year now and find it very difficult to do this everyday
If so and he is covered by medicare, ask about visiting nurse services. His doctor must order these but they are covered as they keep patients out of hospital and ER. they can provide nursing, Therapy (OT and PT and Speech), and Home Health Aides...Sounds like he could use the medical support and you could too. They also have social workers that can help you get connected to other resources.
If he hasn't applied for SS and Medicare - he should. the sooner you apply the sooner he gets covered.
