You could check with the library. In our state, the libraries and some doctors’ offices had a glossy magazine called Senior Living. This was packed full of resources for seniors. This is how I found Home Instead professional caregivers that we used for around 15 years. I wonder if other states have the same resource. I often find that there is a lot of misleading and confusing information on the internet if you just try to Google info on seniors. And definitely check your local council on Aging.

I got a huge list of resources from one of the hospital social workers, and she organized a lot of supports for me as well. They are always an excellent place to start.

Nancy, one can ask the primary doctor of he/she has a list of caregiving Agencies. I found one for my Dad one time when he was in the hospital, the case manager had a list of about two dozen Agencies. The group I choose worked out great and I had the caregivers for over a year. Please note that hourly rates can vary depending on where you live. My Dad was paying around $30/hour. Agencies usually are licensed, bonded, insured, and offer workman's comp to their employees.

You can also get non-Agency caregivers. You would need to check the internet to see how to find them in your area. Sites such as Craigslist.org or Care.com. But if you choose this route, you would need to have a workman's come insurance policy just in case a worker get hurt at the home.
