Community waivers/parent caregivers

Parents need the option to continue to be caregivers for their disabled children   They do not need to undergo time-consuming training or work for an agency--they know their own children and their needs best.  Imposing needless guidelines on parents so they can continue to care for their own child in home is ludicrous, especially when other caretakers are often not knowledgeable, not available, or unreliable.  Please don't make it difficult or impossible for parents to remain caregivers for their disabled children.
