|How To Hire A Good Caregiver|
There comes a time when family caregivers come to realize that they need help caring for their aging relative. We have to admit, being a caregiver is not an easy job. It requires a lot of time and dedication especially when your aging loved one needs constant supervision and assistance everyday.
Caregiver agencies will typically be the most expensive way of finding a caregiver. Independent providers will be the least expensive. However, agencies are also easier to use, since the agency finds and places the caregiver, handles payroll, problems that may arise, and usually provides coverage for sick or absent caregivers.
Once you've hired a caregiver, should a problem develop, discuss it with the caregiver first. If that does not resolve matters, talk to the caregiver agency, if you've hired the caregiver through this route. If the caregiver is independent and you cannot resolve the problem after repeated discussions, you may need to find a new caregiver. If you suspect fraud or other criminal behavior, report it to your state's Department of Health and the Better Business Bureau. Remember to read contracts carefully, check all references, and consult with someone you trust before signing on the dotted line.
