My mom has Alzheimer's and needs someone to care for her. I have a friend who is willing to do this. Mom makes just a little to much so she doesn't quality for medicaid. As it is, there is barely enough to pay the monthly bills so naturally she can't afford to pay someone to care for her. Are there federal funds out there to help pay a caregiver? She is very close to this person who is willing to care for her and refuses to have anyone else.
