Currently have a paid caregiver assisting a loved one. It was my belief when you pay a caregiver you provide instructions and directions about the care. Of late, it seems the caregiver wants everything done her way all the way down to the family pet. Sets hours to work rather than allowing the respite time for spouse to be requested as needed; charges even when not working---which sometimes is OKAY since it is an unexpected or planned event. Most bold move wrote in vacation pay for services which seemed a bit bold. Is this normal or should all time be scheduled through a contract or a type of agreement signed by both parties? Anyone with any thoughts on this topic? This is a new adventure for the family and relatives.
