We are blessed with an amazing live-in caregiver and if I won the lotto I would pay her a million dollars! Reality is we can't afford to keep her at her current rate. We live in CT where caregiver salaries are competitive. I plan to have an honest conversation with her about some options but does anyone out there have suggestions about what other benefits we might be able to offer to see if she would stay? Currently she has excellent accommodations, we love her as a family and treat her as one of us in every way including her in outings, I offer to pay for gym and yoga classes, continuing education opportunities etc....any other suggestions? She is so excellent I have no doubt she could get another job within hours....but maybe there are other things that could be as important?
