Hello Gail & all,
I need some guidance, please. I have been told that there are agencies within Texas that will pay a family care-giver. But I am unable to find any of this information on line. My Mother has dementia (later stage). Several years ago I moved in with her to help. But the demise over the past year has been drastic. I've had to leave my career and now find that I must have some kind of financial help. She has a medicare supplement through Humana Gold Plus. This is a great program for Dr.s, perscriptions, and hospital stays, but does not provide any time of custodial care or home health care. I'm told that if I switch her to medicaid that they have programs for home health care. But that the state programs that pay families are best. Is this some secret society? I have called and called but can not find how to go about this. I saw a past article on this website but 800 number routes you to "no where" land. Can anyone please tell me who/how to go about finding "care and counseling pay" information in Texas?
Blessed Be to all
