My advice to anyone out there who is looking for help for their loved-one: try to find someone close by that you can trust. The benefits of hiring someone close by include:
- You or you neighbors may already know them
- They will be more willing to do small jobs since there is not a lot of travel time
- The lack of travel time reduces the chances of them not showing up because of traffic, flat tire, etc.
- Cutting out the middleman yields higher wages for the helper
- Cutting out the middleman yields lower payments for the client
- It helps build a stronger community
