If your mother is on Medicaid you may qualify for a few hours. Also, if your state has Cash and Counseling you may qualify for some help. Otherwise, it's not likely. Try going to your state website and clicking on their link to The National Family Caregiver Support Program (it may have slightly different name). They are good about helping people connect with local services. You won't be able to replace a full-time job income by any means, but depending on where you live and your mother's financial situation, you may qualify for a few hours, anyway. Good luck,
