You may be thinking, “We have enough money NOT to be forced to choose between caring for our family member with a disability and other things.”
But, historically, at some point, families are burned out by working for this money, but having to spend most of items/care that the rest of society does not need.
And historically, you will consider institutionalization of the individual with a disability. This decision is emotionally difficult and has been proven to have detrimental effects on the health of an individual with a disability.
By lightening your emotional/financial stress, the government is investing in the health of the individual with a disability.
If your pride keeps you from accepting this help, you may be hurting your family in the future.
