How many people are using full-time aides. I'm considering making the switch from living with family and using part-time staff to living alone. I could continue to use part-time and just increase the hours or I could hire fewer people, full-time. In either case, I would have to hire new people because I would also be moving, so retention of my current people is not an option. Curious to hear from people about their experiences with full-time aides. Are you paying them salary or still paying hourly? Are you paying for any additional benefits?
