My father lives with me and has Alzheimer and COPD. Since I am a teacher, my brother (who is having health issues and cannot work a steady job) is planning to come stay with our father while I am working. Then he will go home when I get off work. Is there any financial compensation or support we can get since we plan to keep daddy at home?
Elder Law Attorney
You may be able to qualify for Medicaid under a waiver program to help pay for home health care services. Additionally, if your father is a veteran, he might qualify for veterans aid and attendance if your brother were paid for his services as a caregiver. You should consult with a qualified elder law attorney in your area. There are things that you can do to qualify your father for benefits.

You would need to check with social services in Austin as well as check into SSDI
