Blue Advantage only covers medical things -- doctor's visits, medications, hospital stays, tests. Elder sitters have to be paid out of pocket unless you're able to find some local program. I doubt there is any program that will cover daily respite care, but you may qualify for help a few hours on one day. Freqflyer's suggestion is good. Your local agency should know of programs that can help. Some churches will also help with a little help, though I don't think it would be daily. We understand how you feel. Many of us here have the same problem going when we need to.

Can that senior citizen pay for a sitter from their social security or retirement fund? Check with your local Council on Aging to see what is available in your area that could help you.

Nobody covers sitters. Never did.
