Had to leave full time job to care for dad full time, he wont accept a stranger. I dont know how much caregivers make but I left a job that paid 30.00 hourly. This has been for the last 5/6 months. Before that I took care of dad and mom with necessary stuff. Now my brother is saying I'm stealing the money because I'm not working but yet has not offered up any thing not even a little break from time to time just shows up for money. Dad is in the later phase of dem/Alz.
