@rocketmom I like your idea of being paid for your work. Think of the hundreds of unpaid caregivers! I have a friend who is paid by a county agency to provide 24/7 care for a man with Parkinson’s.
How do people react when you tell them of pay requirement and home decorating?

I always receive positive replies because the individual wants to remain in their homes rather than go to assisted living or nursing homes.
This choice depletes everything they’ve worked for. Loss of savings and home if one cannot afford payments. If loss of all, he would be forced to a Medicaid facility.
I am trying to keep him in his home with care.
