Many Sources exist: Speak to your physician. You may receive answers from your place of worship if you ask. If you have computer access search for possibilities online. Speak to friends and neighbors and ask for suggestions and referrals. The local medical society may be able to provide you with a list of caregivers they have screened and used and have reviews on. Try a local nursing school or hospital social service.

Many: Check first with your insurance company ( in the usa) or with your primary care physician office. Visit your closest hospital speak with a pt. Representative, a social worker or referral dept. Contact organizations like aarp for elderly pts. Contact organizations with the medical problems of the person who needs caregiving. Check media like local newspapers ;local teaching programs of nursing.
