starting an in-home adult daycare
Hi all...I am thinking about bringing my father home from the nursing home and caring for him myself. In order to offset the costs of an around-the-clock sitter who will be required to help me, I am considering taking in another elderly individual for daycare. We don't have an adult daycare in our area and I understand that it is something in great demand. My father does not require skilled care--I only need help with getting him up and changing his diaper, so it would be feasible to have another person with us during the daytime. I've done quite a bit of research and determined that I don't need any type of licensing, and I will be selective about who I choose to make certain it is someone that we can safely care for.
Is anyone else out there doing this or have you tried it?
