By hiring a private caregiver, you can often get a highly qualified professional at affordable rates. With the latest developments in licensing, insurance, and on-line resources, you might consider hiring a licensed CNA.

When considering a CNA, ask for the caregiver's license number, and check it out with your state's Department of Health, either on-line or by phone.
