You are stealing to have an HHA when you don't need one. This is part and parcel of why insurance rates are so high and basic care is not covered for so many Americans. Clean your Mom's house or your room if you are not home or out with friends? Seriously? It's theft.

There are quads on this board who do not get eight hours a day via an HHA. These men and women have an actual need for it. That HHA does for them what they cannot do for themselves. Hell, I did not get eight hours a day and it was not every day when I had a PCA before I hit my current level of independence.

The woman working for the agency is not the bigger problem in this scenario. It's your decision to take what you don't need.
