Caregiver certification and assistance

Asked April 7, 2016, 12:20 PM EDT

My cousin has some mental disabilities; quite functional with treatment (medication) would like to move to South Carolina to live with his Father, but wants to know if there are any resources - that can assist his dad from him being a burden/ dependent in his household. Is there any caregiver certification or financial assistance for caregivers?
