  1. I'm really surprised at how few Lakesiders have responded to this question about home health care assistance.Surely a fair number of Chapala and Ajijic residents have needed at some point to hire home health care assistance. Please relate any actual experiences you've had in hiring -- and retaining -- local home health care assistants. Good or bad? Costs? Reliability? Etc. -- Any information or thoughts would be welcome and helpful!
  2. Does anyone have any general information that would answer the question what proportion of of expats who come to live in the Chapala area end up returning to their home countries? I don't think there's been any kind of study, at least that I've been able to find online. I know, just from personal experience, that sometimes retirees plan to stay in the Chapala area permanently, but then, for a variety of reasons (medical conditions, or the desire to be closer to family, or other things), they end up choosing to return to their home countries. If the population of American expats in the Chapala area is 20-30,000, what proportion of these people tend, over time, to go back to live in the States? -- That's the kind of information I'm interested in, if anyone has personal experience, or even facts and figures! Thanks
  3. Can anyone share experiences with home health care in the Chapala area: For example, are there any agencies that supervise home health care assistants, so the labor requirements are met, and you don't have to deal with them yourself? What is the going hourly or daily rate? Are you satisfied with the home assistance you've paid for? -- In other words, any and all relevant, practical information, advice, concerns. Many thanks!
