My father had a stroke after which my mom had a slight stoke do have a daytime carer that works from 8-4 daily but am need of someone to stay from 4pm until 8am. They would be provided with a wonderful room with full bathroom facilities and a mechanism for emergency situations. They are both on walkers but are improving. Therapy and nurse assistants come on a 3 day basis.
They charge $17-20 hour. You can also place an add in the local paper or craig's list. The services often pay the aides minimum wage & keep the rest for themselves, so if you offer $10 hr or more you will get a better group of candidates.
Investigate these people thoroughly!!!! Check references & ask the hard questions during the interview. The time you spend now will make all the difference.
