Call your local Area Agency on Aging. They have a program called Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) and you can get reimbursed for incontinence supplies, nutritional supplements, over-the-counter medications, personal care, homemaking, and respite services purchased for your brother. The Area Agency on Aging also offers other programs your brother might qualify for--Community LIFE, PDA WAIVER, etc.
