Supporting Personal Care Pay Increases

I'm far from alone when I say that it is nearly impossible to find, much less keep qualified caregivers due to the low pay. Please pass a responsible increase. Having a child evaluated and approved for benefits is (a TON of work with paperwork, interviews, evaluations and phone calls, etc.) worthless if those benefits (care providers, for one) are inaccessible. If parents have no choice but to provide ALL of the care and ALL of the associated work, we should be paid for doing what we do anyhow, pandemic or not. SO exhausted. Help!
