My mom's caregiver that works for an agency asked me for $165.00 to have her heat turned back on. I’m a RN and make good money...but I have never been asked by a caregiver for money. I told her I didn’t have it, she knew I was lying but I don’t think it’s good practice for caregivers to ask family members for money. I asked her to ask her agency for an advance in her pay and she said they gave it to her. Have you ever been asked for money? I did give her a bonus for Christmas but that’s all.
