"How to Hire a Caregiver for Your Senior: Your Complete Guide to Finding, Employing, and Retaining In-Home Help" Provides Critical Guidance To Families



How can families give their elderly loved ones the care they need while also taking care of their own children, careers, and other responsibilities? An estimated 40 million Americans now care for a senior parent, relative or friend. However, family care usually isn’t enough to meet the demands of the senior and the family.

The solution in many of these situations is in-home care, such as a housekeeper or companion, to enable the senior to continue to live in their home as long as possible.

How to Hire a Caregiver for Your Senior: Your Complete Guide to Finding, Employing, and Retaining In-Home Help lays out the roadmap for hiring a caregiver, paying for care, determining wages, managing payroll and taxes, and much more. It’s a must read for families considering private, in-home care for a senior.

Author Guy Maddalone, widely recognized as the nation’s foremost household employment expert, relies on his 30 years of experience in the payroll and employment services industries to bring answers to the pressing issues facing families with senior care challenges.

“Many seniors prefer to ‘age in place’ because of convenience, familiarity, and safety. That makes hiring private, in-home care attractive to seniors,” Maddalone said. “My book will help families easily navigate the rules, regulations, and compliance issues that come with hiring senior care and being a household employer.”

How to Hire a Caregiver for Your Senior also provides guidance for families to manage their caregiver and includes easy-to-follow procedures and guidelines, best practices, real-life experiences, sample forms and letters, and up-to-date information on labor laws and regulations.

The book is available in paperback and as an ebook on Amazon.com.
