When you look for a caregiver, be sure to identify whether you would prefer a male or female caregiver if you are a man. Male caregivers are much harder to find. Be sure to be specific about your needs for bathing. Good luck.

Is it possible to receive occupational therapy, too? Adaptive aids are available to help with daily living, such as clothes without zippers or buttons, or tools that assist when you need to dress more formally. They can give you lots of good tips on adapting to your needs to function better for those hours in home care is not available. I've personally not had OT but have seen how it helped others. Also, I have rheumatoid arthritis and the Arthritis Association's self-help classes (free) helped me. Your doctor could be able to direct you to a similar organisation geared to your cause of disability. Good support, too.

Or you could start the process by simply checking the box for Home Care and putting in your Zip Code. You don't need a PCP.

Contact the Area Agency on Aging in your Area for help to identify resources available. Also check with PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly). If you are on Medicaid talk with your caseworker.

You will need a PCP order for the care. If your on Medicare, disabled , it should be no problem & medicare will pay for it....Talk with your physician. If your not considered disabled, start the process with your PCP. God's speed.
