Emma, have you contacted the agency that provides your PCA care to find out whether they have policies regarding theft that occurs while their employees are working for you?

If you have other disabilities with physical limitations, that's another story, but someone should not need any household assistance, solely because they are blind. If this is the case with you, be encouraged, because you can be trained to be totally independent.
