My mom will be starting with a new live in aide. The issue of an aide having personal visitors to the house has come up in the past. I am trying to create a policy that is fair / safe for all involved. I was thinking for it to state that during the first 60 days on the job please decline from having any visitors in the house. After that point in time, while we don't encourage it since we want the focus to be on mom, if a situation should arrive where a family member / friend must drop off something off at house that is urgent and they will actually come into the house please contact me (daughter) beforehand so that I am aware of the visitor / reason. Otherwise please feel free to incorporate these situations into your vacation so as to avoid the situation whenever possible. Please understand that mom's personal safety/security is my focus as her co-caregiver. So I was wondering how other families / aides deal with this matter?
