Can a Taxpayer Deduct Household employee expenses for care of his wife that is critically ill ?

I have taken household employee expenses for a client that was a celebrity as miscellaneous expense. This is different however, because it is a caretaker. I was first thinking dependent care credit but this is the spouse. I also tried Head of Household but they are married.  Any suggestions?

Perhaps some of the expense qualifies as medical expenses.
