Sometimes I feel that the people in the higher positions in these in-home care agencies take advantage of most in home caregivers by giving them low wages, because they view them as an uneducated class of people. Most of the people in this field are working class mothers who are struggling to make ends meet. Most of these women are single mothers who only have a high school diploma or GED, so the job prospects are slim pickings. These caregivers should be elevated not degraded. I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. We do ask these caregivers to do a lot of things most people would not do.
