Find Care & Housing
There is a huge need for help and resources are limited.
I ran a google search on "financial aid for handicap bathroom low income seniors" and got the following ideas for you.
Area Agency on Aging
Depending on the region in which you live, the Area Agency on Aging may offer a home modification program. Some offer repairs and modifications free-of-charge for those with very-low income. Contact your local Area Agency on Aging to qualify.
Block Grants
HUD awards Community Block Development Grants, or CBDGs, to eligible local government housing entities for revitalizing distressed neighborhoods. Recipients of the funding often sponsor home modification programs. Contact your county housing revitalization department for specific program information and qualifications.
Rural Homes
The USDA’s Rural Development Grant Assistance program, or Section 504 program, offers remodeling and repair grants to qualified seniors over 62 with very low income. The grants also provide for home modifications to enable accessibility and promote self-sufficiency for disabled persons. Applicants must live in areas populated with less than 10,000 people.
Vocational Rehabilitation
Each state sometimes offers home modifications through its Department of Vocational Rehabilitation services. Although the focus of the program is employment for persons with disabilities, some states provide home modifications as part of their support services. Apply to your state’s Vocational Rehabilitation department for consideration.
Veterans
Disabled veterans have access to grants to ensure home accessibility and safety.
Individuals who have served in the armed forces and have service-related disabilities may qualify for the Specially Adapted Housing Grants offered through the Veterans Administration. The grant amount is awarded based on the degree of disability. Contact your regional VA office to apply.
Non-Profit Organizations
National non-profit organizations often provide remodeling assistance to ensure a safe environment. Two examples are the NeighborWorks Program and Rebuilding Together. They both offer free home repair and remodeling assistance to ensure the safety of homeowners. Some programs only help disabled and elderly individuals with very low income. You can find these groups on the web with a google search.

Jenny, I am pushing your post back to the front page to see if any of the caregivers here have gone through a home remodeling so that their parent could live with them, and if they used any government subsidies or financial assistance.
