I am curious to know if any of you are paid caregivers (not family members) and how you decide on a pay rate. Also...any family members out there who are currently taking care of a loved one, have you considered hiring a caretaker? If so, why, or why haven't you? Liisa

Hi! a Home health aide here in Connecticut gets $ 22.00 an hour. Our aide costs $127.00 a week for three days, 2 hours each day. She makes my mothers bed, gives her aide with her shower and does up the few dishes. Once a week she vacumns the living room floor.

I decided to get an aide to get some free time and also to get out of bathing my mother at the kitchen sink. She was doing less and less and getting me to do almost everything for her, I was burned out as they say in the trade. I was constantly complaining to all the family members and they hated to see me coming.
