    Thank you KLD for explaining that. Wasn't trying to assign blame just repeating what I understood from what I read.

    Best of healing to you and best of sleep to your wife. We went through 3 rounds in short succession, and it's exhausting for both. I think your best bet is to just ask the aid directly what she thinks she should be compensated.
    Partner of an incredible stroke survivor. Limitations: hemiparesis and neglect (functional paralysis and complete lack of awareness on one side). Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).

    Thank you for the input. I figured out and solved the payment issue to, I hope, everybody's satisafaction. I ended up paying her regular wage until midnight, a dollar more per hour after that. There was also a personal gift of appreciation.

    due to shoulder issues and failed surgery I lost the ability to turn and position independently. expenses shot up 40K/year for the night shift.

    turned what was a financially manageable situation into a nightmare.
