I keep my dad at home with a 24/7 home health aid. For the most part she is excellent. She is in charge of his care and maintenance and I pay all the bills not covered by medicare and mediacid. This includes her salary.
I visit my dad every other day and always find a stack of mail, many of which are bills or if not, mail dealing with my dad's care and maintenance. It never fails.
Lately when I visit my dad and the aid goes grocery shopping, using the food stamp card, she returns with a separate bill for household supplies etc...this amount is rising steadily, to the point that I had to give her money that I was planning to use for my dinner at a local diner. Instead I had to go home and eat a frozen dinner. Yeah I know...no big deal...but it pissed me off even though I checked the bill and saw what she spent that money on. I think she could do better than that..
Maybe I should consider putting my dad into a facility. I just feel put upon everytime I visit him.I feel like I'm being set upon by wolves.
Is it just me?
