Need a caregiver

Has anyone had experience hiring a home caregiver for anyone you know? My mother aged 65+ has awful headaches and that coupled with the mid-stage dementia makes it almost unbearable at times. So we are planning to hire a caregiver for her. Does anybody know a reputed agency that provides good service? Any suggestions/experience out there?

  1. My heart goes out to the elderly person suffering from migraines. My mother had suffered from Parkinson’s disease and we hired a home care provider from an agency named C-care which is nearby. It's an extremely stressful, physically taxing, mentally and emotionally challenging full-time JOB that goes on 24 hours a day 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Only those who have undergone through this will understand. I hope a cure can be found soon. My suggestion would be to call a reputed home care service-find out the help they provide and get the support from them.

    1. KennethJohn,
      I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. I don't have a recommendation on a caregiver website. But I did want to make sure she's getting the correct care she needs (besides the in-home care). She should have a separate doctor that deals with her Migraines and a different neuro for her dementia. There are neuros who specialize in only migranies. While other basic neuros will cover a lot of different diseases, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and ALS. You should look into making sure she is seeing a Headache Specialist. Here is some info on how to find a Headache Specialst:
