    My Dad has Alzheimer's. He has been recieving A&A benefits since September. I am his caregiver, and my dad qualifies for nearly the full amount because he needs full time care.

    If you have children you can pay them to be caregivers or hire someone else. This would allow you to keep your job. If your husband qualifies for the full benefit, you can then pay someone $2000 monthly for his care. Since homecare agencies charge a lot more for their service, I suggest you hire family or someone you can trust.

    I am finally back. I have been having computer problems but it's working now.

    I am already not working, I quit my job 13 months ago to care for my husband full time. If I knew then what I know now...woulda, coulda, shoulda is not going to help now.

    I do see now where he would qualify for time served now it's just how to I deal with the fact that I do not have a ton of medical expenses to report, just no income because I stay home with him. head hurts.
