Spousal Caregiver Bill Signed




After three long years Bill HB39 has been signed by the Governor of Illinois. This Is the Bill that I've been working with Senator Koehler to pass. What this means for me and others like me Is the state of Illinois will now pay me to care for my husband Instead of hired help. It Is a great victory. Here Is the original post about the Bill.

What a blessing! When I cared for my Mother I have often wondered if a caregiver ever got any help with the finances. Of course, you have helped soooo many others by helping with this bill. Congratulations
