Eddie; besides what Joy just suggested, you might want to Google "Medicaid waivers' and the name of mom's state.

Many states have waiver programs by which Medicaid pays family caregivers a stipend. It's not a lot but it's something. Sometimes they are called PACE programs.

Another good resource for information about local programs is your local Area Agency on Aging. Every County in the US has one.

Best of luck and please wish mom a Happy Mother's Day from me.
