Since my mother is disabled and has MS on top of that the state pays me to take care of her so that she isn't in a nursing home.
Well yesterday I got my check in the mail and I needed to check and see exactly how much it was so I could figure out my bills.. I went :eek: looked at it again and went ??? I didn't think it was right..
I talked to my moms case manager and they gave all personal care assistance raise.. I went from $8.50 an hour to $12.00 an hour.. thats $3.50!!!!!!!! YAY me!!

I'm glad they see the worth of caregivers. It's not a simple task.

I don't think Hawaii has that perk for family members. Today, I am on leave w/o pay to help my Mom.

That's wonderful. I second the fact that you have a hard job that needs a great deal of recognition.

Good for you Kathryn.
I wish I could be closer to my dad to help out.
I know it must be tiring thing to do at times, but also a great comfort. You deserve every penny.

I was excited!
I would never want an unknown person taking care of any of my family members if there is a way that I myself can do it. Sometimes it can be tuff being so close and dealing with everything but in the end its worth it. I know shes safe from harm and I can keep an eye over her!
