Are there caregivers, support groups, etc. that live in the state of VA?

I've found laws differ for each state in which we live in. Mother has multiple health conditions under currently under HH and Father consumes alcohol everyday and falls at times. I work full time, have 2 sisters that do not and need advise for hiring a sitter to fill my shoes during the day to prepare meals do light house work and have no idea where to find a person to hire and what the cost would be.

As GardenArtist had mentioned above, I live in Virginia, and here in the northern part of Virginia [next door to Washington DC] there are dozens upon dozens of home health care Agencies that are licensed, bonded, insured, and with workman's comp.

My Dad uses a nationwide Agency, and in my area they charge $28 per hour [the same Agency could charge less in your location]. If you prefer to hire not using an Agency, then your parents would need to contact their homeowner's insurance carrier about getting "workman's comp" insurance, in case the worker becomes injured while on the job.

Go up to the Search Site box and enter your parents' city and state. Lots of information will pop up.

If you do start contacting agencies, be sure to be honest about your father's drinking; that might be a factor in whether agencies choose to become involved, but definitely should be noted in terms of liability, which they likely would be unwilling to assume given the drinking issues, i.e., they might include an exclusion in their contract for any issues or actions that occur as a result of his drinking.

FrequentFlyer, one of our regular posters, recently entered the world of home health care for her parents. She can offer good advice on what she found available in your area. She usually posts in the afternoon.

Another method is just start searching online for home health care companies in your specific area of Virginia.

From what I've read, hourly rates can range from $18 to $25 for one person, or $35 for two caregivers.

The local Area Agency on Aging might also be able to give you a list of agencies, but I don't believe they can make recommendations that might favor one agency over another.
