A caregiver may well need to reduce work hours, or even give up work. On top of that they may have extra expenses. They may have to travel to be with you and perhaps pay for help (such as child care) to cover their other responsibilities. They may also be reluctant to reclaim the cost of medications, products and other household items that they may pick up for you.
