Re: Caregiver Woes

You can never win! Caregivers are hard to get! The other principle is the patient has to get used to the new caregiver so she needs some time... The first time is bound to be problemetic as the new one is not used to it and Mom is not used to her...

It is hard! That is just the girl's voice and the way she talks. You may not like the way she is so you can feel free to let her go if you think it justifies... It is up to you. Not that all young girls are not good but they are young and may not focus on the old person totally since they have their hangups... Also the 2 girls we had were not CNAs at all. In the end, the experienced ones are still better but your Mom also needs to get used to the new person first.

Good luck,
Nina
