Years ago when I used to work as a HHA, the agency allowed us to transport the clients in our own vehicle. I was assigned to a case where the client had her own car which was far better than mine... She started using me by asking me to go to the grocery store every day to pick up an onion, a head of lettuce, sometimes a tomato. I had to take her in my car to the beauty shop and doctor's appointments, while her car was sitting in front of her house. Even though the agency paid me for mileage and gas, I felt being taken for a ride (pun intended). One day I asked, why I cannot take her in her own car since mine had an over heating problem, she told me she wanted to give her car to a family member. I told her the air conditioner is not working, she said she didn't care, she didn't mind having the windows down. ....This is Florida where the weather is in the high 90's... I became adamant, I called my agency and told them I wanted to be taken off the case while explaining the situation...She said if I cannot drive her around in my car, I am not doing anything for her.....I kindly asked her to signed my paper work and left.....After that, I found an agency where part of their rule was,never under any circumstances are you suppose to take any client or family member in your vehicle while working on contract for them. You can travel with the patient in a car that is driven by a family member, or taxi. Those were the days.
