I find my caregivers easily. Look at the people around you and ask yourself which one has the time and is trustworthy. Offer $10, an hour.

Keep a binder for your caregivers to have access to Dad's schedule (which you should type) and emergency phone #'s.

We have had an excellent experience with 24/7 Home Care. They have been flexible to our needs in terms of scheduling and services. I found them at www.twenty4sevenhc.com.

It depends on what he needs. You can find basic,
supervisory care, meal prep, grocery shopping, laundry, (what we call "Companion
care" at your church or place of worship, or from a neighbor with the
inclination to help. Offer the best rate you can depending on how many hours he
needs, how much he has and how long you anticipate the care being needed. In
Marin County, CA, a rather wealthy county, the going rate is at least $15, and
up to $22 (these are private rates) depending on how difficult the personality
is (or how serious any prevalent dementia might be) and how physically demanding
the job is. I say, pay the caregiver the best rate you can and typically, you
will build loyalty and commitment.
