Finding senior care
I FIND IT SO AGGRAVATING when I get to the "pay" part of an interview and the applicant says "Nope I work for CASH only and will not give out her SS info etc or allow SS taxes and Medicare to be taken out. WHat is the general feeling ?
Also will there be a contract to sign with them? How much should I pay them? Will it be an hourly pay or a periodic payment. Doing this for the first time and want ti to work well. Any helpful tips will be appreciated. Thanks -SSG

I'm worried about hiring some one to help me. I want them to be a good person.
I'd like to hire a caregiver for my mother, but she doesn't need an in-home nurse or any medical care. How much would it cost to hire someone just to help her go on errands, take her to her piano lessons and keep her company during the week?
