The strokes left her wheelchair bound and unable to speak. I cannot work full time because she cannot be left alone for an extended amount of time. I believe that she does not qualify for medicaid, and was wondering if there are any other programs that pay the care giver of elderly parents.I have been doing this since she had her stokes around 9 years ago and really need some financial help. My sister has POA and she doesn't know who to ask either for help. My mom does get her retirement and Social Security but that just about covers the food for the month, her medicine and her everyday needs. I hope that someone can point me in the right direction.
