How long have you been a caregiver, and where does your experience derive from?
This should be a red flag showing you that the person is not professional.
I disagree with paying a friend out of your parents' money. This is when a nursing home or a residential facility may come in handy. If they choose this route then you may want to contact their insurance providers to assist you. Good luck!
