Find Care & Housing
Discuss it with your siblings, giving the reasons you have concerns. Ultimately, if it is the siblng chosing the caregiver you really are not the one who has to like the person. It is the sibling who has to like the person. Unless the sibling is in the throes of dementia and has a POA who is hiring. In that case, discuss with the POA you reasons and concerns. Be concrete and specific, whomever you discuss it with.

Hard to say as you give no reasons, nor do you say whether your LO likes them. If its just you who don't like them then that hardly seems like a reason for you to do anything, if there is a lack of care or your LO dislikes them it may be different.

As a sibling and a caregiver myself, I would talk to them and find out if there is something to your intuition about this person. Finding out about how the client feels about them too might help. It's very difficult to make a quick judgement on another persons personality, try to consider how they are with the client as well and if they are getting high marks there- you may just have to let it go. Good to have your thoughts documented though so you can always remind your sibling later 'I told you so'

mailingjoanie, is the caregiver for you or for someone else in the family? Your profile doesn't give any information :(

If it is for someone else in the family, what is important is if that family member who is being cared for likes or dislikes the caregiver.

I realize there can be personality clashes. One of my Dad's caregivers I wasn't all that fond with, but my Dad really liked her and she took excellent care of my Dad. Was so very protective of him. No door-to-door salesman could get past her :) She would take Dad over to long-term-care so Dad could visit my Mom, and made sure it was during lunch time so she could help feed Mom, etc.

Also, you will need to be specific about what you don't like...their personality? How they administer care? Their decision-making? Are they doing things that are arousing suspicion?
