    Jack:

    If you need a live-in caregiver then you are providing them with free room and board. Now, if they work five days a week at a $100 a day, their salary is $2000 a month. Not having to pay rent is worth about $700 a month. You need to find someone who can help you with a discharge planning and section 8 housing. You have written that your budget is $135 a day, which adds up to $945 a week. This should be enough money to find fulltime care. I would suggest that you do not pay by the hour, but give the PCAs a salary. I am getting the maximum amount of hours and money from In Home Support Services, which totals about $1,300 a month. How you are getting $135 a day for attendant care?

    If you live in the state of Michigan, they have a catastrophic injury law on the books and PCAs get about $14 an hour, including full medical and a paid two-week vacation every year.

    Good luck with your situation,
