Lawyers or Support organizations in Albuquerque,NM area
A friend of mine is the sole caregiver for her ADULT mentally disabled child (paranoid schizophrenic) in her home. Caregiving for he son is a full time job. My friend took early retirement from the US post office so that she could care for him.
1) Is she able to receive caregiver payment for caring for his son? Please keep in mind her son is totally disabled and cannot be left alone for extended periods.
2) If she is not able to receive payment as a caregiver for him, then can an outside caregiver be paid to care for him if she goes back to work?
3) Are there any Lawyers or Support organizations in the Albuquerque area that can assist with her with applying for assistance.
