    OMG I thought u were serious till I read the bottom -

    Anyway, just let them know the computer is off limits, and setting the password protection is a great idea.

    KLD, have you ever posted a generic version of the employment contract you have with your mother's aides?

    Given some of the stories posted here, it seems a lot of folks don't have anything written in place with their aides, and I'll bet many have no idea where to start with one. You (not surprisingly) appear to have developed a contract that's really well thought out and addresses things it would take some of us ages to come up with, if we managed to think of them at all. I, for one, would love to be able to have a sample to guide me in creating a contract that works.
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

    Here is a copy of the template we are using for our most recent PCA hires:

    3. We have agreed to a ____________ shift paid training and trial-work period. If at the end of that time, the work is not satisfactory, this agreement will be terminated.

    Workers 25 and under need to have their constant text messages or you are considered an old-fashioned bastard.

    KLD thank you for the contract format

    I have a pretty relax setup for my caregivers. I am asleep when they get to my home. I let them use my laptop as long as my cleaning stuff is done first (takes 5 minutes). I keep nothing of value on my laptop, so its ok. trust me, its better then the alternative.... them falling asleep!!!
    C'mon buh bub!
