Amarie, vast majority of wives do not get paid to care for their husbands unless the husband can pay the wife from his own retirement fund.

Otherwise, see if your husband can be accepted into Medicaid.... if yes, see if your State has a program where a love one can be paid.... if yes, please note the pay would be minimum wage for a few hours per week.

Also, if your husband was a U.S. veteran, check to see if there are programs for the Vets.

VA aid and attendance may be available to him. This money is used to hire caregivers. You would have to check to see if you could be paid with those funds under a care contract. He must have a VA rep you could talk to. I have found face to face meetings are the most productive.

Bob, check out the articles on the VA section here on this forum.

This question has been asked periodically and answers offered on how to begin the process of getting assistance from the VA.

If his disability is service connected, he might be eligible for compensation for that, as well as medical treatment which the VA provides.

You'll find a lot of helpful information by reviewing questions other veterans or their spouses have posted.

Even if he has been denied Social Security Disability, appeal it. It awful to say but most people are denied the first time they apply. You don't need an attorney or "representative" to help with the appeal process, just complete the forms. All an attorney or representative will do that you cannot do for yourself is to take your money. You may have to appeal more than once, just keep at it. Good luck to you.

Is he a Veteran? Is he getting Social Security? How old? Can you post additional details?
If he is a veteran, review www.va.gov website and try to apply for VA benefits. Contact your local Area on Aging. Where do you live?
Blessings, Bridget
