Hiring a Caregiver - tips on how to hire the right help

 

Is it time for hiring a caregiver?  This is a tough question that may need to be answered at some point.  Whether you or someone else is the primary caregiver, help may be needed from time to time.  This is by no means an admission of failure, but rather the opposite: that you are sensible enough to recognize that some tasks have become more than one person can do effectively or without putting both of you at risk of injury or worse.  Let’s say that you alone can no longer shift your loved one’s position in bed, or that you cannot bear all of his or her weight to walk him or her to the bathroom due to increased weakness, or that you cannot leave your loved one's room even for a moment to get something from the kitchen.  At this point, it would be justified to look for help before someone gets hurt.

 
The following websites can help you consider whether it is time to get help, how to find the right type of help and how to hire a caregiver.
