New primary carefiver

My husband has been in the hospital since Dec 2020 and was recently transferred to a rehab facility. He is due to be released on April 1st to me and I am so afraid because he cannot walk, has a feeding tube, has congestive heart failure and requires 24/7 care. He is being transferred from GA to AL and has no insurance in place at the moment. I don't know where to begin in order to get assistance for him. Can someone help me find some resources that will be able to assist me?

    Hello there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to the support network. I am so sorry that you and your husband are experiencing this. I am glad to hear that he is able to come home, but understand that the road ahead may not be easy. I hope that you can foster a sense of community and solidarity here on the support network with others who have had similar experiences. 

    Here are a few resources I can share with you about Caregiver Resources, Living With and Managing Heart Failure, and Communication Tips for Caregivers.

    Please keep us updated on how you and your husband are feeling.

    Best wishes,
