Sarah Lesher sarah.lesher [at] gmail.com Our Aging in Place committee is looking into the feasibility of hiring one person rather than the many separate house cleaners different households are currently using. We thought we might each specify how many hours a week we would be willing to commit to use someone for, not just cleaning, but cooking privately, cooking a common house meal we don’t feel up to doing, other needs. At the moment nothing like personal home health care, but we think that should be contemplated. However, beyond considering free room and common meals as partial compensation, we were unable to agree on the number of hours of total work commitment the community might offer, and the hourly wage, that we would need to provide to attract someone. Or how to search. We’re also concerned about liability issues, employment law issues, and everything else we should be thinking about. Any experience with this? Advice? —Sarah Lesher Cantine’s Island Cohousing, Saugerties, NY
