    Hi!

    So it looks like we've found a suitable live-In carer for my mother in law (who is 71 and has Alzheimer's). The carer is a lovely lady who is a relative of a church friend, and she has been coming to care daily for my mother in law for the last few weeks. They seem to be getting on really well, and after a near miss with leaving the gas on last week, we are looking to step up the care to live-in.

    I was just wondering whether anyone on here has any experiences and tips of privately employing a live in carer please? I presume we'll need to do formalities such as a job description/outline the roles and responsibilities and of course will need to draw up a contract.

    This is a whole new realm to us, so any experiences anyone can share, we'd be really gateful.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am afraid I cannot help with an answer but thought I would give this a nudge as it is something that has been suggested to me for my Mums future care, and I would be interested to read any comments you receive. May I wish you good luck x x
