Hiring a caregiver: In-home care agency vs. individual
Q: How do I know that the caregiver I choose will be best for my loved one?
A: Great question!
When hiring an individual as a caregiver, there is a lot of research you should do before becoming the person's employer.
- You need to make sure you've done a thorough criminal background check, called the person's references, maybe even talked to prior clients for whom they've worked.
- Does this individual have the skills needed to manage your loved one's complex issues that seem to get worse as they age?
- What if the hired individual isn't doing the job properly? How do I fire the person?
These scenarios run through your mind all the time when you employ an individual caregiver.
By having an agency on board, we handle all of this for you and more. We screen the employees, only bringing the best on board.
We meet your loved one and do our best to get a caregiver with the right skills and personality to match your situation.
