Do I need to meet my carer before they start working?

We recommend that your first appointment focuses on how best the carer can support the independence of the older client – their needs, preferences and what a good or bad day looks like. If you prefer, this can be an interview but we would suggest you advise the carer of this.

We also recommend that all people involved in the care; family member(s), the older client and carer are present at the first meeting. If you live away from your older relative, you can arrange a separate call with your carer.
