For 2 hours a day someone to come in give mom with mild dementia lunch, do exercises, take to bathroom & read to her. I was paying $10 an hour. I will increase to $15 starting in Sept for 4 hours a day. Is this a reasonable amount?? This is not thru an agency. The caregiver is someone I was able to connect with. Not a professional just someone looking for extra money. We live in East coast. Mom does not like this person. I am not crazy for her either but I have no choice. I have no family help am pretty new to this and very tired and overwhelmed, any advice will be very really appreciated.
