      Gunnar, this link is to an article on the AARP site that explains the different caregiver categories and licensed/unlicensed, etc.

    Dagmar, Thank you for providing the link for hiring an in-home caregiver.  I’m just beginning this process and it’s daunting!  I would also be very interested in hearing how others went about their search.
