Disabled people & their caregivers do not deserve this invasion of privacy

My entire family, unfortunately, is disabled: my children, my husband, and myself. My children have attendants who help them daily with a variety of tasks. The EVV app is difficult to use, tracks their location, makes approval of hours more difficult, uses up a lot of memory on their phones, and just doesn’t work. In addition, it is absolutely wrong to have my children’s as well as their attendants’ privacy invaded like this. I do not think this is or was ever a good idea.
