This Week's Carenote - 06/02/11
I have a 20-year-old daughter who still lives with me; she has cerebral palsy and other health problems.  I have to take care of her 24/7 and am unable to work. She receives SSI and Medicaid  This is the only income we have now. Someone told me I could get a caregiver's check each month.  Could you tell me how to apply? I have tried  calling  Social Security, DSS and the Health Department, each sending me to the other.  It's  offered in my state (South Carolina) because my aunt's sister receives it for her brother who has Down syndrome. Please help me if you have any information.
