Personal Care Pay Increases - Support

I have not been able to find nor keep for any length of time a care provider for my son who's authorized for a full time care provider/direct support person beyond myself (Mom) even well prior to the pandemic. The pay is/has not been competitive for those in the profession of personal care. Also please make parentally paid care permanent for parents of those with disabilities who qualify for personal/direct care. We are drowning due to lack of assistance and funding, yet do a LOT of overwhelming, but necessary work in many capacities.
