No Agency Direct

My son is on a waiver and I’m his paid caregiver. When we first got the waiver I tried to go agency direct , but couldn’t find anyone. I find it hard to understand why parents/spouses need to go thru an agency to care for their own child/spouse. Sense my son is a minor I had  to pass two background checks. Parents don’t need any additional stress either. We have IEP stress, medical stress and what the road ahead looks like for our loved ones. Please leave it like it is. As it would be one less thing for us to worry about.
