For about a month we have a new caregiver come in who checks all the boxes, she’s reliable, has her own car and drives mom safely to errands/appointments, she is not constantly on her phone, she tidies up/vacuums/dusts without any complaints, AND she encourages mom to do her physical therapy stretches, offers to do activities like coloring books or cards etc. She is really an ok lady and my mom doesn’t give a real reason for wanting to fire her, other than I don’t like her. I don’t know what to do, it is so hard to find someone who checks all these boxes, especially being reliable and not texting all day.
Today Mom was going to tell her not to come and I actually got very upset discussing why bc she doesn’t give an answer or an example and doesn’t even want to give this a lady a chance to improve etc.
After she asked I have looked for a new caregiver but the ones I’m finding do not have the availability etc. I really want to make it work with mom and this lady, please help!
