Good morning all, This maybe a little different coming from a payed caregiver and not a famiy member ,but you see even those I am a payed private care giver I NEVER charged where families can't pay,I feel my life calling is helping families to keep love ones at home so sometimes I will use a sliding scale pay..Ok now for my question, I take care of a wonderful couple they are 78 & 80 in my line of work that is young ,they could live into their 90's and paying for 24hr care 7 days a week is draining them fast,The family is trying to find cheaper option for night care(I am day girl 38hrs a wk)I worked last nite to fill in and neither one got up well he did but he more or less take care of himself,They do need someone here a night she has some dementia but NOT for 15 bucks an hr!! (I make 13 like I said I try to be fair) so any ideas for cheaper night help??? Ins of any kind is not an opion,Please help with ideas,Thank You
