Is it okay for a caregiver to bring her kids sometimes and come in late and leaves early?

She's caring for a disabled senior Bout time the caregiver leaves at night her patient has to stay in the bed all night long with wet diapers. She works for a agency she brings her kids and her sister is also over there taking care of her while her kids are over there & her boyfriend & the agency she works for knows that and they said it's ok because their like family but their no relation. Is that still ok to tolerate that type of profession when your on a job.

Have these people been fingerprinted, educated by agency, health screened, background checked? If the agency is sanctioning their presence, there may be legal issues if the client gets injured, ill or loses property by one of these "shirttail employees". A reputable agency doesn't even allow personal phone calls while CGs are on duty. This is unprofessional and may violate privacy statutes as well.

Oh, sure. It's just fine.

NOT!!!!! Report this to Adult Protective Services. This woman probably needs to be in an assisted living facility at the very least.

Here's what I'm imagining: family is making a decision to keep this woman in her home to save assets. They've hired some cheapo service to take care of her and don't CARE that she's alone and in wet diapers all night along.

Report this today.

Something to consider is that kids can get on older people's nerves. So the kids either have to stay quiet or invisible or the elder has to put up with them. If the care receiver does not want the kids there, the caregiver needs to go. If the caregiver is distracted and not doing her job well, she needs to go.

I wouldn't put up with this. I think an occasional inclusion of the children in cases of emergency could be understood, but not all the time. It's not fair to the care receiver or the children. The sister would be okay, but only if she was an accepted helper and wasn't a distraction.

Ask the person who hired the caregiver if it's ok, if not, then that person knows what to do.

Maybe the agency knows and maybe the person is just saying the agency knows - so no one will call and really tell them? Might be worth making a call to see for sure.

I say not just a new caregiver but a new agency as well. You say "the agency she works for knows that and they said it's ok because their like family". I can only say WTF??? No decent agency would tolerate that kind of behavior, and neither should you.
