I stay at home bc my mom needs 24 hr care. I don't collect monies from her. We are barely getting by. God blessed us all to be together. I just dont believe he meant for us to be fighting to keep lghts on. We lost our cable, oh boy what a battle explaining to a woman who has no short term memory why she cant watch Food Network. Is there any help out there for us. I promised her no homes and I will keep that promise. I'm just scared I wont be able to make my bills one month and we will be out on our butts. So, my ?'s are.
1). Is there any way I can be compensated?
2). Can my husband and I claim her on our taxes as a dependant?
