Many of us need some help during the day, and some of us need a lot. We get that assistance from people all around us — our family, friends, coworkers, random good Samaritans and of course, personal care attendants. Personal care attendants in the morning, personal care attendants in the afternoon, personal care attendants in the evening, and personal care attendants at night … once to turn to the right and once more to turn to the left.
We need to hire qualified staff, build professional relationships, train employees, coordinate shifts, ensure tasks get done, keep things friendly and track hours and money so people get paid. It can be frustrating. Sometimes, exhausting. Managing it all can be the equivalent of running a small business — one that your life depends on. Your success really comes down to getting a few key things right: the hiring process, organizing shifts, human relations and payroll.
