If person with Early Stage Dementia wants to stay in their home forever but can't afford $16,000 month for caregivers in this area, what should they plan to do? They can afford up to $1000. Month but that will only cover part time. Have been told as disease progresses 24/7 care will be necessary. It would be devastating for person to sell home and live in an Assisted Living community. They tried it once and left after 6 weeks.
Person is very independent and doesn't follow rules and regulations well! At what stage should a Live-in caregiver be hired and how much could one be offered in San Diego area where salaries are higher.
Would taxes etc have to be paid from caregivers salary and would POA need to handle those issues?
