I am the single parent of a 12yr.old boy with DMD. Working full time and taking care of my son gets overwhelming sometimes as many of you well know. We have been trying for a year now to find a care provider to help out. We live in a rural area in Eastern Oregon. Family helps out as much as they can but they have lives too. I am wondering if any other parents out there are experiencing this same problem. In Oregon we have programs to help pay for these providers, our problem is not in paying for the providers it is in finding providers. They say lots of people are out of work...I can't seem to find anyone who wants to work...or they want to but, do not want to travel and it is only 20miles. We have advertised in local paper, local employment office. There is an organization trying to help us but now the program that helps pay for this is saying the rate of pay is too high. It is getting frustrating and discouraging. Anyone have any ideas how to solve this issue.
