In a bind re: care providers UPDATE Thank you ladies!!
It never ends!!! Ahhh!!!
Ok that is over-I internet screamed then the neighbors can't hear me-LOL!!
So I have a max of home health care help and I am at the max (16 hrs a week-that is another story)
My dh calls me and says he has emergency over time for the REST of the MONTH -AT LEAST!!-another employee became sudden ill--I have 2 days to find someone to help me!!
So I call our respite provider (I get 10 hrs a month with that-but if need more one month then take away another month) so I called her-she can't she works another job and same hours I need help
So my other respite lady I already know can't -she works every week the days I need help
My other respite lady has no vehicle and lives 45 minutes away (and I don't drive-I have epilepsy)
and My other respite lady is working like 16 hrs a day so she can't right now
My family is out-my mom has a bad hip-and it is physical care with my son
My brothers-well they don't do know wiping adult bums and they work anyways
My sister lives over 2.5 hours away and so does my dad
So on the search!! The county has this new dumb policy and tells all the agencies that they don't help find respite providers-Come On People this is an Emergency!!! Which I think is a bunch of bull!! because I use to be a county worker and I would help families find emergency respite providers--bottom line-they need help-they need help
So I am on the search-luckily I know connections-but it is so LAST MINUTE and the hours are hours people don't really want plus I have to find someone who ALREADY has criminal and child abuse clearances and that is a task in itself!!
Please think of me through this journey today and/or pray for us!! Anything-light a candle for me--whatever you believe in!!
Thank you so very much!!!
UPDATE- 07/12/12 Thank you all for your prayers and/or thoughts!! First I was searching and searching everything fell through-2 days straight looking for someone-no one--so then dh calls and says 2 weeks is when he has to start working all this extra overtime--so I have 2 weeks-
Well ran into Dollar General-my sons old aide looking for a job-only issue her child abuse clearance old but she worked with us for one year-so I know-I asked the agency--they said they don't want to get in a habit of using old clearnaces-but it takes at least one month up to 2 months to get the child abuse clearance back and so they are letting me use her-she is suppose to come over after her Dollar General Job-found out she went to college to get a counseling job and that is why she left the inhome health care agency-so she is coming
Also possibly found someone else waiting for call-but at least none of this has to start for 2 weeks--we don't have a lot of respite and maxed out with our hours for in home respite and called the Disability Rights lady because she feels we could get more and especially with my husband having to work an extra 30 to 50 hours (Yes an extra) for 5 to 12 weeks we need the help--so waiting for her call
Thanks for the prayers and thoughts-Keep Praying and for the thoughts please-still getting the kinks worked out!!!
Thank you all!
