My wife's hospice care with paid care givers is extremely expensive. It has cost me over $55,000 last year to pay care givers for 7 day care for my bed-bound wife. We didn't expect that she would still be with us now after over 12 months in home-hospice. My savings are almost depleted and I'm wondering if there is some agency of the government that provides financial help for such situations. My wife is 84, and I am 85 in fairly good health. I would appreciate any help i can get.
