Help for bed bed person with caregiver

Postby ENGH1 » Wed Jan 20, 2016 9:59 am

I am desperate! I am disabled and my family and I live off of my disability. My husband is my 24/7 caregiver. I have a 22 year old son who is still in school and a 29 year old daughter who is now on bed rest due to a complicated pregnancy.
I do receive food stamps, but all my bills are not completely covered by my check. We are barely making it.
I need help for my family. (mostly with utilities such as water and lights)
We live in Madisonville TN.
Any help would be very appreciated.
If you have a form that I could fill out, please send it to me and I will fill it out and return it. (I am bed bound)

Your adult kids should rotate caretaking and let dad get a job to help financially, no one can really live on one disability check. You can try 211 for local resource info.

Caregivers can be arranged by agency on Aging centers. There are multiple locations all across Tennessee, and you can find them and read about them here. https://www.needhelppayingbills.com/htm ... aging.html
both senior citizens and the disabled may be assisted.
