This is a correction of an attempt to previously ask a question in which I omitted the most pertinent information about the caregiver's reason for waking my mother "to use the bathroom." Anyone who out of curiosity, clicked on the nonsensical question, would then have been treated to a diatribe about the sad state of elder care in Hawaii. In terms of the embarrassing omission, my new kitten's habit of leaping on the computer keyboard to get my attention was likely the cause. Now please allow me to clarify: the caregiver in my mom's new adult foster home, told me she woke my mother at 11PM to use the bathroom before going to sleep. Perhaps this is done to minimize the amount of times my mother is likely to wake said, caregiver; it may also be because my mother, seemingly, will not ring for assistance, and risk disturbing the new caregiver. Not surprising, after what the last caregiver said and did to her. Unbeknownst to me, the last caregiver had said to my mother, "I do not get paid enough for you to wake me in the middle of the night to take you to the bathroom; so stop drinking water at night." My poor mom. My mother has instructed me not to tell the present caregiver about how mean the other was because it will cause the new ones to do the same. I did anyway. In the last post I went into great detail in explaining how the State of Hawaii, lowered the qualifications for having an adult foster care home from CNA, Certified Nursing Assistant to NA, Nursing Assistant, out of consideration for the largest demographic of caregivers, given language barrier, and how it might preclude their ability to obtain higher than an NAs license and/or preclude a CNA from hiring them should the need arise. The State of Hawaii, unlike Washington and Oregon State, does not allow family members to provide home care for their loved ones, and likewise get paid. Hawaii law makers, apparently, believe that an elder is more likely to be abused by a family member, than an under qualified stranger. Most kupuna suffer from complicated health issues that require greater training and competence than an NA can possibly, provide. While a family member is more likely to go the extra mile in attempting to get the proper care for a loved one, and minimize suffering without pay, state lawmakers, ostensibly do not see it that way; it still claims the inexperienced, licensed NA is still the safer bet . Be that as it may, I have increasingly needed to be my mother's voice. I never dreamt speaking on her behalf would lead to her being abused. Thank you, for any and all help.
