carer change again

I`ve had to dismiss my care agency...there was quite a lot of trouble last week.
Carers had been to a household with covid and  refused to go again....afraid of bringing it to me and other clients.

2 of the staff resigned.........I have engaged another.

It was very worrying and upsetting too. Now both my carers only have me as their client.
This covid has a lot to answer for!

    I’m sorry to read that. I work for a childcare provider and we have had similar issues. Some of our regular families have cancelled booked jobs at the last minute. I pray that this lockdown will be over soon. Can you talk to the manager of the company or not? Try explaining your concerns as clearly as possible. I hope that you can resolve things quickly too.

    Sorry to hear of this @pollyanna1052.  The change of carers must have been really upsetting and worrying for you.  I hope that things settle down for you now and you are keeping safe and well.  :smile:

    I’ve been wondering how people are coping with this. I’m really sorry it’s had such an impact on your care @pollyanna1052!!

    i completely understand your carer’s nkt wanting to risk bringing it to other clients.

    have you met your new carers now? Now are you getting on? It’s good they only have you on their books ❤️

    Sorry Chloe...only just seen your message.

    I am really happy with Becky as my carer. She was with the agency I sacked, but had resigned.

    She is a lovely person. She is going to uni in September...so I`ll need to find a replacement before then.

    Difficult times to be advertising/interviewing.

    Hey @pollyanna1052, glad your happy with the carer, can't be fun going through a time of training another person to how you like things, good luck on finding a replacement
