Thanks so much for your patience and I"m sorry for the confusion. It looks like you had posted your question this morning; however, you opted out after just a few minutes of our discussion. I was actually in the middle of responding to you and because you opted out, the moderators had to remove the opt out so I could continue chatting with you.

Generally, social security doesn't provide money to caregivers; they only provide money to the actual person like your wife, who can then use it to help offset some of the care giving costs.

Have you had a chance to apply for her to receive social security yet or spoken with the SSA about her eligibility?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
