Let's Talk: What are some Unique Solutions to Help Mitigate the Caregiver Crisis?
Hot Topics and Challenges for Self-Determination
Again, I totally agree with what you're saying! This is so much more than wages. The entire system needs to be revamped. I've tried a couple of agencies and have had horrible experiences. Major safety concerns with the workers. And, if I would find a decent agency, the workers probably wouldn't be able to physically give me meds--we've run into that. So frustrating! Self-directing literally is my only option right now!
I'll be honest with you, I've been very hesitant about using a Support Broker because there are no guarantees. It's the same with paying for advertisements. Sites such as care.com have no guarantee either. Since there are no guarantees, it doesn't make sense to hire a Support Broker. I'd have to cut workers shc pay and my transportation miles. It just doesn't make sense in my situation.
