Do spouses have the right to care for each other?There is no opportunity to do this.

Although there is a rule: a consumer directed personal assistant may include any other adult relative of the consumer who does not reside with the consumer or any other adult relative who resides with the consumer because the amount of care the consumer requires makes such relative’s presence necessary.
