Young Trached Duchenne patient

My son is almost 25 years old. He has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He lives with his handicapped wife in a handicapped apartment. He receives 14 hours a day of attendant care. He was just Trached last week, and is currently still in the hospital. He would love to continue living in his apartment with his wife. He lives 4 1/2 hours away from any of his family. he only has the Access (medical assistance) card for insurance. Is there any way that he can receive 24 hour care, of nursing / attendants. Not sure where to look for the help?
