I am 72 and 100% caregiver. My wife is 77 who has been bedridden due to health issues. I am spending $25,000 or so extra each year for outside help from CNA. But also for supplies such as diapers, creams, soaps, bed pads, equipment like wheel chair etc, vitamins, supplements, wipes etc etc etc. I know that some of these can be deducted as part of medical deductions, but it is so small compared to the spending for the other needed stuff.
