Public policy allowing spouses to be care attendents

I am a 39 year old women with Spina Bifida currently needing an attendant not only due to being in a wheelchair but also because I am recovering from a stage 4 wound that I will always need help with. My husband is the only one that has been able to get me Iin and out of the bed and in and out of the shower. I have no muscles from being bed bound for more than a year. I deserve to be able to pick my attendant and I shouldn't have to go to the agency model and gave him employed there to get the proper care I need
