This is a tricky situation. I understand the tough times you must be passing through.
First of all, try to convince your employer about the situation.Make them understand the need for you to work form home and the expenses involved in contracting a professional home care.
If things don't work your way and decide to move out(which I hope is not the situation), please contact the Wisconsin UI office for guidance on eligibility. The state also offers assistance on finding suitable employment.
