This Week's Carenote - 3/26/10

I have been taking care of my mother, Alice, lives next door and has recently undergone several major surgeries over the past 3 years.  I am more than happy to do this for her and will always be there for her.  My friends have told me I could get paid for this as well - I have no idea where I would start.  My mother is 81 and I am 56, have a husband and raising a 14 year old granddaughter.  No problems there, but I have been reduced to 30 hours a week at work because of a car accident a couple of years ago and had back surgery, so I am limited in some areas.  My question is - Is there something out there that can help me subsidize my income and continue w/helping my mother? 
 
Some things are difficult to find out on these matters and if you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate your guidance.
