Caring Husband Seeks Grant Money Or Other Help For Disabled Wife

My wife Monica has had four back surgeries in the last four years and they say there is nothing more they can do for her.
We rent and live in a two-story house with three children and all bedrooms are upstairs. She can barely get up them.
She is limited on what she can lift and takes 14 pills morning and night.
The first fusion with rods she had done has no bone growing on them so now we are looking at another surgery coming up.
I don't know how much more she can take physically as well as mentaly because of this. Our children 15, 8 and 6 are affected as well.
We have to get a one-floor house soon but can't afford to move or buy. We are so far behind on bills and medical bills that we don't know what to do.
I have considered quitting work to stay home and be there to help her and the kids. She can't bend over for very long or bend down and get laundry.
Everything we take for granted as easy is a painful chore. January 12 of this year she was in a car accident and worsened things more.
We really need help for her. I want to take care of her forever. She is only 37 years old and I can't give her anything to just make life easier for her.
She is a strong woman but it is finally wearing her down. She just wants to enjoy the simple things in life with the kids and myself.
Some days she is stuck upstairs in bed. It's terrible and breaks my heart to see this.
If there is any way anybody could help us just to make life somewhat normal and easier for her, to see her smile again is worth more than anything anybody could give. Thank you for you time.
