I am in WV, my aging parents live with me and my wife and we can't work for caring for my parents and she takes care of her mother several times a week. Mom just passed away and without her income we can no longer live here. How can I get paid or get financial help to keep our home and keep caring for my dad. My dad's social security is not enough alone. Since we are not working I don't see how we can even have my dad rent us an apartment at his age and illnesses..We need help.
Your dad's funds should be used for his care - not yours!
That being said, your father may qualify for Medicaid and if he is an eligible veteran he may be able to receive a non-service connected pension of up to $1,650 per month.
Contact your county Agency on Aging and the local Veteran Service Office.
