I’m new to being an in home caregiver. I was asked by a family to temporarily help take care of their parents until they find someone new.
My question is this: their long term care insurance has approved both of them for care reimbursement at a certain rate, but the family only wants to pay me the rate of one person (they are not double billing, they bill a certain number of hours for one person and a certain number for the other one’s policy). Should I be charging double or at least a slightly increased rate to take care of two people in the same home? One is around stage 6 dementia/Lewy Body Disease the other has Parkinson’s.
