Where do you live? I know here in Michigan, if someone cares for a person who has a disability they can get paid by the government - it's not a lot but it's something. Also too, you may want to ask this question to your mother's insurance company (she does have insurance?).

Check with the county office on aging where your parents live. I understand what you are going through and you absolutely must get help. I too have fibro plus other bad pain and both my parents have Alzheimer's and live in an assisted living with an aide. It is so difficult to understand and deal with. The main thing is to get the help and take good care of yourself.

Good luck with everything!
