Adjusting To A New Caregiver
My parents are in their mid 80’s. Over the past six months my father has had a series of falls that have landed him in the hospital and he’s unsteady on his feet. They have agreed to have help during the day and my father now wears a falls alert pendant for hours when there is no help.
The problem is they have fired many caregivers after only a few days and for trite reasons; one filled my father’s glass with too much water; another hovered over him or talked too much. He interviewed each one before hiring them and initially thought they were capable and nice. He’s just waiting for the “perfect caregiver.” What can we do? Ellen F., Newton, MA
