He wants to live then die at his own home. Anyone using / recording w/cameras for video/ audio surveillance of activity? He has openly displayed family valuables in his home- and is vulnerable due to lack of awareness so just remove these things? Is there a comprehensive checklist for this type of home prep?
He’s 90-got moderate memory impairment, serious pain in back and knee that require freq sitting, needs meals, snacks, prep and to eat w/him, help staying organized with hearing aids, phone, checkbook, glasses, keys (he still drives!) remembering to take meds from prefilled planner, reminder for Nebulizer 4xs day, safety issues as he is on tractor and doing tasks inside/outside home and using power tools, can’t do heavier house keeping; to make him stop these activities would be a THE huge deal to him and he’d give up on life. His pain has started to effect his eagerness to do so much physical work but he lives to do work and still regularly has desire to try.
So back to ? agency vs private hire... only have access to 1 local reputable hire agency. I posted job on care.com and have Some applicants Interested but must pay to join in order to contact them plus do a lot of background checks and manage them myself. There is only a few $/ hour difference in cost-or possibly same cost. So based on that and our urgent need I will probably try agency first. But for the long term- anticipating quick uptick to a 7/24 hr situation -Any other WAYS to find locals with interest to interview? Living in Henderson Ky- Bordering Evansville Indiana- How to find the right person and determine the amount to pay an individual(s) privately? Every day is another challenging step to negotiate... just starting to learn to dance our way thru.
