The agency I phoned sent an aide tonight and next week they will send a person to write the care plan! I thought the care plan would come first! So tonight has not gone so well. At least it is a very experienced aide so the changes she wants are fine with me. Some of it will need a doctor to write something so Medicare will pay.
I have been paying for everything myself!
I have been doing this care mostly myself for 7 years! Right now I have an aide only in the morning to get DH up 6 days a week. He cannot stand so transfers have been getting harder and harder. That is the reason I hired an additional aide--one that is connected to a larger agency than I have at present.
This all came about because of a 'lay person' I met at water aerobics. Linda is extremely experienced caring for people. She has made a business of taking one person at a time into her home. she had to find out the complicated laws and get the business going. But in th eprocess she has learned evry aspect of this caregiving business! She is god-sent to me. And tonight's aide is also god -send! Thank You, Lord!
