Alamosa Seniors: Hiring providers

Posted: Wednesday, Nov 14th, 2012

Good morning,

I have a few tips for you if you need in home care providers. How you go about hiring will depend on what kind of help you need, whether in be in your house or in your yard.

The more time and homework you spend in the initial hiring process, the better the chances of success.

Interview several candidates in person before hiring. You could do initial interviews in a public place before having them come to your home. Be specific about the tasks you need, and be sure they are capable of doing these tasks. Be sure to ask questions about their experience. Make sure the person knows what and how you pay. Make sure you check references carefully. Check references from more than one source, and have the sheriff do background checks. Donít be afraid to move on if they are not the right fit.

You need to feel comfortable with them.
