That's the number one question asked on this site. Most family and friend caregivers provide unpaid caregiver support unless the patient can pay them from their funds.
Here is an article that explains some of the alternatives that you might qualify for - Medicare does NOT pay for 24/7 caregiving in the home in most cases. Medicaid will pay for some caregiving by waiver in the home but the lists are long; it's not 24/7 other than a very few places like New York City; and it's really not a living wage with benefits. Any money to help pay you will be considered taxable income and may affect any household benefits you get if low income.
