I was told by a co-worker that social security offers caregivers of elderly/disabled parents some kind of financial assistance, but I haven't been able to find anything about it. My mother is disabled with various ailments (most recently, kidney failure where she is now on dialysis 3x per week).
I had to give up my normal job as a Property Manager, and take a lesser paying job that afforded me the flexibility I needed to be able to care for my mother.
Nearly every dime I now make is used in connection with the cost of caring for my mother. Naturally, her own Social Security is used as well.
If anyone knows of government financial assistance that I may be eligible to receive PLEASE let me know.
