Seven months after getting home, we feel we have finally arranged the home care we want. What a relief! We tried all the options, and hope the one we chose will work out for us.
I think I mentioned we were pursuing the 'Family Managed' option, where they give you the money and you hire your own home care. But the further I got into it, the more I saw the disadvantages. And then two agencies offered to provide coverage seven days a week, morning and evening.
That was enough to change our minds. So we will get morning care from the V.O.N., and evening care from Care Partners. That leaves us to work at getting consistent and appropriate times from these folks. I'll let you know how it goes.
And now we're off to remodel a bathroom.
