Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that there are no programs right now that will provide for family member caregiver compensation. I am afraid that she can get you medicare assistance to pay a professional in home care provider for when she goes to work, but there are no programs that pay a spouse to stay home from work to care for their spouse.
