Choosing A Caregiver

Choosing A Caregiver

No matter what else you do in the process of hiring a caregiver, the most important thing to do is to trust your feelings, and go with whoever feels right.  Use your intuition and don’t be afraid to trust it.

We interview hundreds of caregivers in Los Angeles each year and always give this advice to our clients.  Common sense and research are always essential to make certain your Los Angeles caregiver is a good match.  Once you have a candidate you like you need to use your intuition to make a choice.

Define What’s Needed in a Caregiver

There are specific skills that you need your caregiver to possess. These are must-haves in order to get to be considered.  Make a list and review it with your caregiving agency and we will make additional suggestions for your consideration.

Reviewing Your List of Potential Candidates

You know what your needs are, so be ready when interviewing potential caregivers. It matters how much you like a person but you also need to sure they possess the right set of skills.  The best way to be specific about your needs is to make sure all potential caregivers have a specific level of professional experience.  Do not interview anyone who does not have the appropriate level of experience that meets your exact needs.

The Bottom Line – Trust Your Gut

Now that you have done your research, you now have a list of requirements so go with your gut instinct. You’re probably thinking that you should not make this type of decision just by following your gut instinct and check everything out.  However, according to leading CEOs the best decisions come from following your gut.  Use this to make your final decision and the results will hopefully be a success!  One of the main advantages of working with a professional caregiving agency is the ability to change your caregiver if you are not satisfied.  Simply call us and we can make this change for you to your complete satisfaction.
