Hi can you tell me whether the issue of your being remunerated has ever been mentioned between you and the rest of the family?

Also can you tell me why you spent 3 years caring for her?

Yours sincerely

Michael

sorry but could you explain what does remunerated means?


 


i was asked by the daughter to quit my job and help out with the caring as she is an elderly her self, she was 65 at the time and the lady being cared for was 89 and the rest of the family was never there to help so she felt pressured.


 


so i moved in with them to care for both elderly.
