I'm a 48 yr old daughter of 2 great parents. I moved back home a year and 1/2 ago to help my mother take care of my dad. hes 76 & had a stroke 3 1/2 yrs ago. He can't talk, or use his right arm at all, but he is able to walk, but falls at least 2 times a day. The Dr. said hes going downhill fast, he also has seizures, & a lot of other problems. My parents were hard working people, & because of that they are not on medicad. They are by no means wealthy, but my question is, My savings is about gone, I gave up my life to take care of them, is there any programs out there, to help me with my bills? Like I said I'm 47, menopausal, basket case, and now being broke is really stressing me out. I have no insurance, no spouse,& no $, Is there any way to get any help at all?
