I am the spouse of an 80 year old.I am 69 years old and was recently laid off after 13 years. We both are on a fixed income with our social security. Plus I have a small retirement fund which I have not used yet (my husband has none) but he is a vet of 3 years in the Navy. My husband has begun to have incontinence issues among other health problems. My question is...living on our social security (state pays his Medicare) can I be considered his caregiver by Medicare California? Is there any compensation for me or other family member?
