Checklist for finding a caregiver

Finding the right caregiver can make leaving your loved one under someone else’s charge much less stressful.


Finding the right caregiver is a crucial decision that involves assessing both the needs of the individual and the qualifications of the caregiver. It's important to look for someone who is not only skilled and experienced in providing the necessary level of care but also compassionate and compatible in personality. Good communication skills, reliability, and a strong sense of empathy are essential traits. Conducting thorough interviews, checking references, and considering trial periods can help in making an informed choice.

Use our checklist to conduct thorough interviews with all your prospective agencies. Meet with the agency face-to-face, and ensure you are comfortable with their knowledge and understanding of your situation and needs. Finally, read what other clients are saying about the care the agency provides.

Remember, this isn’t the time to be shy. The more you know about the organisation you hire, the better you’ll feel about the important role they’ll play in your family’s life... so ask away!
