Mistyann125, your best bet is to contact the Medicaid office in South Carolina. Every State has their own rules and regulations, who can qualify and who can't. And what programs are available..... programs change frequently, what was available last year might not be there now due to budget cuts, etc.

Vast majority of people do not get paid for caring for a loved one, unless that love can can pay you directly from their own pocket.
