    I hired a friend of mine who was trained in that to take care of my mom, as my dad was having a hard time of keeping things going at home. He was in his 70's and mom had Alzheimers, was in her late 60's. She got to live in the extra bedroom and was on call when needed. It worked out pretty good. My brother paid her a weekly sum, and did the paperwork for the tax purposes.

      Would you share with me how much it cost?

    Get used to the idea that caregivers come and go. I would recommend using an agency.
