not sure what state you are in but in nys we have medicaid to pay for this. get her qualified through department of health or office of people with disabilities may help - we have what is called the waiver service which in effect waives the household income and allows a person to get medicaid as well as medicare and the point is to keep people at home not in institutions - good luck

this seems to be a commun situation in the US! Why does the american health system work so bad? banghead.gif

Anyway. try to contact organisations for funding, also local churches and groups. Put some focus on her education when asking for money, that usually seems to turn around peoples hearts. "oh, she's so smart but the odds are against her. we have to help her!". And things like that.
Good luck!!
