This Week's Carenote - 1/27/15


Do you know of any kind of financial assistance available in Alabama for a caregiver of someone who is bipolar? My daughter is on disability, but she only receives $750.00 per month. Then she has to pay $350.00 per month for her insurance for two years until she can receive Medicaid. She has a 14-month-old daughter to take care of financially. My husband is disabled, but cannot draw disability because he was self-employed and did not pay enough money in for the last three quarters worked. We are struggling due to all the doctor visits and health issues related to some of the bipolar medication that has caused my daughter to gain over 150 pounds. I have a job, but I am so overwhelmed financially and physically from taking care of everybody. Please help!

Check with your state for a program to assist.

In Florida we have a Cash and Counseling Program through the Medicaid program that pays up to $800.00 a month.

Also, seek legal advise for your daughter, having a daughter of her own she should qualify for other programs. God Bless you!
