JStacy, when I had overnight care for my Dad I went through a professional Agency because it was licensed, bonded, insured, and had workman's comp. Thus, it gave me a better feeling about the caregivers they employed. Yes, it was expensive, in my area it was close to $30/hour.

The great thing about the Agency I used is that the night shift caregiver stay awake the whole times. These caregivers only work the over night shift so they sleep during the day. Their shift was 8 hours.

Dear JStacy,

Hiring private care can be expensive. I'm not sure which area you care in but I would call and speak with the Seniors Department and see if they can recommend any caregiving agencies. I think the average salary begins at $15/hour or more.

I would take my take my time and make sure the candidate is fully vetted. I know you have the person's safety in mind. I would try to interview the candidates with the person you are caring for in the room, so they can see if they have a connection or good rapport with each other.
