As A New Caretaker Is Hard For Me Not To Be Working And

Oh yes, my mom has Alzheimer's too,
My dad and I r the main caretakers.
My mom is doing great!
And my dad is happy I am here to help as well.
I'm glad I am as well is hard for me not to be working and having no health insurance, is there any help out there for full time family caretakers, as far as health insurance and some income options?

That is scary, I depend on the health insurance for peace of mind now and for care in the future. There are too many jobs that don't carry health insurance. Contact Social Security and Medicare to see what guidance they can give you
