(I work or am there 24/7). I am a live-in for a 90 yr old woman w/ slight dementia, on oxygen, walker or wheel chair bound. I cook, clean, care for her: bathing, hairwashing,etc. ; grocery shop, everything. Get paid $300 a week and have a HOUSE only account of $200. I get 4/5 hrs off one day a week when the daughter comes to visit most weeks but NOT every week. If I need a day off to go to a dr. out of town I have to pay someone out of MY pay! I agreed at hiring but DID NOT know what I was getting into besides working 48 hr shifts. Home health was coming 3 x a week until I walked in the door and they let them go, even though she was eligible to get care. I love the family and my little lady but...... if I had something to back up my NEED for at least a weekend off or anything, I wouldn't have to burn out in about 6 months if that long.
