    A number of the agencies that provide home care workers have been telling me they require a 3 hour commitment now. I always split my time 4 hours morning and evening. I hire one caregiver myself through a agency that just handles the paperwork and max pay is $10.99/ hr. Bad thing is the state pays them almost $20.00/ hr, same as the agencies that pay workers minimum wage or 9/10 per hour. If the crooks would pay $12 or more an hour instead of pocketing half the money or more, there would be less turnover and better help.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
