Interesting topic re caregivers who help their loved ones. I do agree. But I'm wondering how many families utilize the services of home health agencies like Visiting Angels, so that caregivers come into the home to do homemaking, personal care, and medication or insulin shots. It can be paid by Medicaid or private insurers or even Medicare. Or private pay. I am employed as a caregiver and we don't get paid much. And most families take us for granted in terms of all we do. It is emotionally exhausting, as well as physically and mentally. The only gift I value is the sincere appreciation of the family, and a client who really wants me there personally.

@georgette12 I would like to give you a big Thank You for all the work you do! As a nurse, I truly felt that nurses’ aides, just like you, had the most difficult job. You work as a caregiver in all sorts of situations; good and bad, difficult and easy. What helpful information can you pass along to other members of this group?
