Most Councils On Aging have info on loans that you can get - we considered it but there was so much paperwork to get together that we finally decided against it.

Wouldn't it be easier just to put him in LTC. Sounds like he would qualify for Medicaid for his care. I would think this is too much for you. I know I could not cars for a 355 lb man or would I. He is where he is because of how he lived.

There is no assistance for this type of thing. Is brother disabled in some manner? You could use his funds but it will be questioned if he needs Medicaid in the next five years. Even though ur putting it in for him, Medicaid looks at it as an improvement for you making ur home worth more.

Call your County Office of Aging and see if there are any kind of Grants. Try ur County disabilities office too.
