This is so confusing. Can anyone explain what this means? Number 1 says if you are employed and providing attendant care services the per-hour value equals the federal minimum hourly wage. Number 3 says if you are employed and providing attendant care the per-hour value of that care equals the per-hour value of the family member?s employment, not to exceed the per-hour value of such care available in the community at large. What????

1. If the family member is not employed or if the family member is employed and is providing attendant care services during hours that he or she is not engaged in employment, the per-hour value equals the federal minimum hourly wage.
2. If the family member is employed and elects to leave that employment to provide attendant or custodial care, the per-hour value of that care equals the per-hour value of the family member?s former employment, not to exceed the per-hour value of such care available in the community at large. A family member or a combination of family members providing nonprofessional attendant care under this paragraph may not be compensated for more than a total of 12 hours per day.
3. If the family member remains employed while providing attendant or custodial care, the per-hour value of that care equals the per-hour value of the family member?s employment, not to exceed the per-hour value of such care available in the community at large.
