Hiring a Home Care Provider: a Guide for Family Caregivers

In this workshop, we explore what it means to employ a home attendant/professional caregiver. What are the rights and responsibilities that go along with this role? How can you develop and maintain a positive and productive working relationship with the person or people you employ? We’ll discuss challenges and concerns, share perspectives on this relationship, and offer guidance on best practices. 

Objectives:

  1. Provide basic information on rights and responsibilities of employing a home attendant/professional caregiver.
  2. Offer guidance on how to develop a positive and productive relationship with a home care worker, including effective communication.
  3. Explore how to balance your needs as an employer with the needs of the worker.
