Regarding home help care, this is what Medicare says https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/home-health-services.html

I would postpone knee surgery until you find a good alternative for care for your wife. One suggestion would be respite care in a nursing facility until you are able to get back home. Chances are that would be out-of-pocket expense, but you never know.
