Thanks JoAnn, not sure the type, if physical or mental or both. And I agree, caregiving is an enormous challenge for even the most capable. This was a recent finding that sheds some new light on why my family situation has been so difficult. I’ll look into the different types of support. Thank you.

If they are on SSDI, then yes there are income limits. If you earn more then $1180 a month, your SSDI benefits will be impacted.
