I am unable to work because I took over taking care of my dad last year when my mom died. If I did not stay home to care for him, he would have to live in a home. I prepare all of his meals and serve them to him since he forgets to eat if I don't. He is diabetic in addition to several other medical conditions. The few times I was gone for a good portion of the day to take care of person things I came home to find he hadn't remembered to take his medication and only had his morning snack all day long. We cannot afford for him to hire someone to do what I do and I was told he does not qualify for Medicaid. I was told by a friend that she got paid for taking care of her mother. At the time this information was not relevant and my friend is no longer with us so this information is inaccessible. I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.
