  • Maintaining Caregiving Services

    Posted by alyssa-silva on January 22, 2020 at 10:19 am

    I’m currently waiting for an appointment where I basically have to prove that I’m still very much disabled and still very much need caregiving services.

    I know this is all par for the course if I want to continue receiving services, but I always get a little nervous that they’re going to take away some of my monthly hours. Sounds a little funny typing because nothing in my health has changed— or improved I should say. But I’m always afraid I’ll be a victim to budgetary cuts and federal changes.

    Anyone else feel this way? Caregivers are the heart of my livelihood and the thought of losing hours terrifies me.

    Oh my gracious, yes! No matter how many time we do it, it’s still a bit nerve wracking. Like said, there’s never any reason why it should change, but it still causes some anxiety.

    Sad but true.  Especially when the ones making the rules have no clue.

    I’m so glad I’m not alone in this!
