My mother lives in Maine. I live in Chicago. She gets in-home health care from caregivers she hires. I am trying to manage the scheduling, hiring, occasional firing, etc. of these caregivers. This includes finding substitutes when people call in sick. I know that a service could do this for me, but my mother is resisting a service because she really likes the caregivers she has now.
So, what I really need is someone in Maine who can be the on-the-scene person helping me with these logistics. Planning the schedule, finding subs at the last minute, recruiting new people, and maybe occasionally taking a shift.
I don't really know how to start looking for someone like this.
All suggestions welcome.
