Currently seeing a psych tristen and on medication. Do they have a program that pays for someone to takes care of him while im at work?

Hi,

I'm sorry to hear about your son's condition. I know that Social Security, which is the agency that administers Supplemental Security Income (SSI), doesn't offer any programs that would pay a person to take care of someone who's receiving SSI, but I don't know about other agencies. You might want to try checking with the Department of Social Services in your area to see if they have any suggestions for you.

Best, Jerry
