I am an Home Health Aide and a lot of the elders I take care of go through the Ageing and Disability for similar things like this. They don't take too long to answer you back seeing as they are all for helping out elders who can't work and are in need of assistance.

Try going to your County Ageing and Disability offices, they should be able to help your mother with getting help to apply for any assistance she might need and finding an affordable company. They might even just pay for the whole thing even if she isn't qualified for any assistance through their company, they are usually great with helping out with these things. Good luck!

I work for a disabled low income man in Noble, Oklahoma. His hot water heater went out over 2 months ago. He can't afford to replace it. He applied twice for assistance through a foundation from his electric company, but has been denied both times.

Does anyone know of a program that he can get help through?

If he can afford to have somebody work for him he should be able to afford a new hot water heater. Of course there is a possibility that you are being paid through the Department of Social Services.

HUD is there to help repair home for people on a fixed income or disable. You should make an appointment with the office near you and see if you qualify for assistance.

If it is gas, it needs to be disconnected asap. If it is leaking it is not safe and will be making your water bill go up.

A leaking hotwater heater usually has to be replaced, unless it is leaking from a connection.
