This Week's Carenote - 02/08/11

My mother lives in Oregon. She is 70 years old and takes care of my brother, who is 50 and totally disabled. She has tried to go to college and update her education and has tried to keep a job, but my brother cannot be left alone for more than an hour or so at a time. As a result, it has become an extreme financial burden. My brother gets disability, but it isnít much.
 
Is there any program that can give her aid as a caregiver of an adult disabled child?
 
Thanks for your help.
 
S
