    Well, I thought "caregiving" would be about, and perhaps sometimes by, people who give care; it should really be named "care receiving".

    I would love to find a forum of fellow HHAs; sadly I'm...

    Of course, the entire universe revolves around your handicapped loved one and we should be grateful to serve her. If you found someone who fooled you into thinking that they also feel that way, then...

    I'll tell you what I think based on the comments I've been getting from several (although by no means) all people here:

    How does it seem like that? Because I am asking people to please treat their caregivers with minimal respect and not ask them to break the law? That's so outrageous that I must be saying it just to...

  14. Do some people actually resent and hate aides?

    It interests me how several people have interpreted very innocently intended comments by me on this forum as being filled with hatred and anger. In fact it's obvious that most of my post and comments...

    I don't really understand you. You mean I should quit so that this man will have no aide and be forced to be more independent?

    Oh, if only that were true. I'm not making these things up. I'm assuming you aren't an HHA.

    Are there any aides on this forum who can comment on this?

    Anyway, is this in fact the consensus among patients and their families: A good home health aide is a happy slave. Anything else is a bad attitude.
