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.
