Re: Rant: Useless paid help

You probably should ask for another home care co. Ask them if they have experienced CNA people for dementia patients. Some home care co. has training for dealing with dementia. Naturally the caregiver wants to do your work because it is easier than taking care of your Mom!
Some home care co. does tell you they know how to give the person showers and etc. You need to find the professional co. for experienced CNAs or even independent experienced CNA (certified nursing aid.) It is a good idea if you hire at least one CNA and the other caregivers can follow the CNA.

Good luck,
Nina
