Medical expenses

Over the last 2 years I have been the primary care giver for my mother. She prefers me over a home nurse or an aide, but by doing that I have gone through all my savings. At this point I am completely broke. I just brought my mother back home from the hospital she is recovering nicely from a blood clot in her chest. With each time she comes out there is always new medicine she has to take right now I don't have the available cash to purchase all of the medicine she needs and all of our credit cards are to their limit. Her insurance covers some of the cost but not all. The money that the both of us have goes to our everday living expensives . She doesn't qualify for medical assistance from her insurance because her and my father's pension is to high , but the rest of the  money from the pensions also goes to pay off a second mortage my parents had to take out and the rest of that  barely keeps us going. Work for me has been very slow in the enternaiment business and when I do work I can't work to many days in a row because  my mother has dialysis treatment 3 days a week at Long Island Jewish  Hospital along with her doctor's appointments. I not looking for a handout just some help until I can find a overnight job or a permenent day job that will allow me to take care of my Mom at the same time. Hopefully  I can get the money I need ASAP to help cover us for a few months or longer.
