Parents as Caregivers and agencies

A simple internet search will show that Va continues to rank low in providing appropriate support for its disabled population. This is one example. What purpose would be served by making overextended, stressed, parents qualify through an agency to care for their own children? Absolutely no purpose except to discourage them which is likely the true purpose of this. Then what? There are no caregivers willing to work for this low pay with no benefits. These agencies have already proven themselves incapable. So what next? Where does this leave our loved ones with disabilities? It’s time for Virginia families to stand up for their rights, and possibly seek out legal help. This is nothing less than harassment at this point.
