I'm trying to figure out how people are paying for attendant services. I have someone in my house each morning for about an hour. She helps me get dressed and does some very light cleaning. I pay her about $45 a day (after taxes and workers comp) all out of pocket. I make pretty good money but I hate paying so much 365 days a year. How do you pay for attendant services and how much?
Well Rex Here in Pa we have the Waiver Program which is simply thus, you are evaluated and determined to be sick enough to qualify to be in a nursing home but like me i'm 43 and they would have to shoot me with so much valium to keep in that place i would be in a coma, so in consideration for not putting me in a home and letting me live in my Own home with Aides to come in and assist me with whatever i need laundry, garbage, feeding the dog, occasionally catching me when my hands won't cooperate, basically anything i tell them to do they do and i have them for 80 hours a week and can pay them anywhere from minimum wage to 9.10$ and the state pays them i have my own EIN my own business and have an agency that takes care of payroll insurance taxes and all that stuff, the guy i have with me now gets the 9.10$ and i give him a generous christmas bonus on the side out of my funds because he has been with me for 5 years and across hells half acre and for the four years before him i had his wife working for me its avery good family and there children are like my own that i will never have these diseases die with me they, will not get any offspring i would have had.
