Hi Mandi, Thought I would bump up your question to see if anyone has any ideas what you should be looking for. I am presuming the agency you will be hiring her from will have done all the necessary checks on her, references etc. I think it is very important that she is a compassionate type of person and one that you feel that you and your mother can relate to well.

Hi Mandi, I would ask how long has she been doing this. How many elderly patients she looked after. Let Mum have a chat with her and see how Mum feels about her. First impressions are usually right. Good luck to you and mum.
