What Kind of Questions Should You Be Asking a Dementia Caregiver in Kirkland?

When you're searching for a caregiver, you're not just looking for someone to simply provide services for your loved one. You're looking for someone with whom they can forge a genuine bond that will enrich their life and lift their spirit. It may sound like a tall order, but asking the right questions can help to lead you to a dementia caregiver whose skills and personality make them a perfect fit for your loved one in Kirkland.

Some questions you may want to ask a potential caregiver could include:

  • What made them want to pursue a career as a senior caregiver?
  • What kind of relevant experience or training have they had?
  • Are there any tasks which they would feel uncomfortable performing?
  • Are there any dates when they won't be available to provide care?
  • How can you reach them or their agency if you have questions or concerns?
