Anyone else rediscovering music you have loved for years?

So I'm on my walk through the 'hood with my iPod listening to my faves, and I think, hey what about some Joni Mitchell. OMG. I've always loved the voice, the sublime and awesome piano, the drop dead in your tracks lyrics. Turned on Down to You. I had forgotten the orchestral arrangement. What a masterpiece. I replayed it 3 times. Then A Case of You. Then For Free. The early 70's had some kick ass music and Joni was a big part if it.

So we need to move my 98 yr old mother to assisted living

We had her in a board &care place for 6 weeks which she hated. So we hired a full time caregiver and brought her home. Problem is we are paying under the table, and my CPA brother is afraid we will get "caught" and be on the hook for taxes and other payroll deductions we should be taking. The State of Calif has time and again determined these workers as employees, not independent contractors like our caregiver keeps saying she is. She is asking for a 1099 nec form for her taxes which we will do. She says this has sufficed in the past. We are also afraid she may fall and hurt herself and sue us for unsafe workplace. Looked into workers comp ins also.
So we are looking at a beautuful facility in Pasadena, Villa Gardens. Mom doesn't want to go of course.
At the end of my rope. Anyone dealing with this? I know alot of us have elderly parents. Thanks for reading.
