    For theos who use Paid caregiving How mamy pca come in to work

    I have paid caregiver. I live on my own. I am having a lot of issues
    getting care. I have 24/7 care. Its takes five pacs in a week to
    care for me.

    My mother has 5 caregivers too, although it is not 24/7.

    She has one live-in (who also has another job) who puts her to bed daily, and gets her up Mon-Friday, and does some care at lunch time Mon-Fri.

    She has another caregiver who does Saturday & Sunday AM and noon, as well late afternoon/evening.

    She has another caregiver who does Mon-Friday late afternoon/evening.

    The 4th and 5th people are "back-up" who can fill in for those above for sick calls, family emergencies, etc. etc. One of these previously held one of the jobs above.

    All but the live-in positions have been held by a variety of PCAs over the years. I just hired the most recent one last weekend (using Craig's List to recruit).

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
