Flexible Caregivers must be willing and able to adapt to changes in daily routines and circumstances. When you're caring for someone, you have to be able to adjust to their needs. Ayesha Brooks of Ford Leonard Hood, Missouri. says Its important for caregivers to have flexibility, especially when working with single parent families. Patient According to a Care..... poll of members, 55 percent of families say patience in the most important quality in a sitter. All parents know that raising children requires patience as the children learn everything they need to know. It takes time for children to learn right from wrong and if a caretaker lacks patience you could be looking at serious problems. "Patience holds the utmost importance in getting through the day with children," says Leigh Hunziker, a New York-based writer and mother of three. "Children test the patience of authority every day, so whoever is caring for your kids should know how to handle it with the right balance of discipline and calm." Suzy Williams of Killeen, Texas agrees, says, "I look for kindness and patience in anyone who will be dealing with my son. Attentive Caretakers should put the person they're caring for first. If they're spending all their time on the phone or on Facebook, they aren't doing a great job of interacting with the children in their care. Enjoys Children Not everyone actually enjoys spending time with children -- but all caretakers of children must actually like them! Elena Smith of Loudonville, New York says When I was interviewing candidates to take care of my kids, I looked for people who seemed more interested in my kids than in me. I looked for people who genuinely liked my kids and wanted to get to know them. Trustworthy You're putting a lot of trust in this person who will be caring for your loved one -- they should be worthy of it. Many caretakers have access to the entire home and may even have a spare set of keys. They need to be trustworthy, both with your belongings and with the lives of your loved one. Safety-Conscious The safety of your loved one comes first. Look for someone who is trained in CPR/First Aid and takes safety rules seriously. Loving If a person wants to spend their days caring for other people, a warm and loving personality is a good thing to possess. Actually caring for a charge can make all the difference. Enthusiastic Having an enthusiastic Babysitter will help children feel happy during their time apart from their parents. Enthusiastic caregivers are also more likely to come up with new games or fun ways to entertain, instead of parking your children in front of the television for hours. Does the candidate seem to truly care about the elderly? She might be perfect to boost your mom's spirits after she gets home from the hospital. Athletic If you have two rambunctious toddlers to love nothing more than running in circles all day, it's important to find someone who can keep up. Or if your teenager thinks about nothing but soccer, look for a sitter who shares that interest. Honest You should expect your employee to be open and honest with you at all times. How did the day go, what types of activities did they do with your child, did your elderly parent receive their medication at the right time? If you catch a caregiver in one too many white lies, you may need to move on. Good Communicator A caregiver should communicate well with children and other adults. Belinda Duguay Wolters of Rochester, N.H. says, I always look for how the person interacts with my child. One thing I always look for is if they get down to the childs level when talking to them. Jamie Frankenfield from Albany, New York agrees. If the caregiver Im considering has children of his or her own, I consider the way they speak to and about their own children. Experienced Practice may not make anyone perfect, but caregivers with more experience tend to handle challenging or unexpected situations more responsibly than a new sitter. Check for certifications and degrees to find people who take their career seriously. Creative If a caregiver is creative, constantly coming up with new ideas or activities, it's more likely that your child or loved one will stay engaged and stimulated. Funny You might not think so at first, but a sense of humor is an important personality trait for a caregiver to possess. Humor indicates the individual is comfortable interacting with others, has high levels of tolerance and will be able to handle difficult situations in stride. Tidy If you're a clean freak, you'll want someone who will clean up after themselves and leave your home like they found it -- or even neater. Practical Parents expect caregivers to follow the daily structure and routine theyve set, and this makes practicality an important trait for caregivers to have. You can gauge a caregivers sensibleness level by checking their resume for self-discipline, the ability to keep to deadlines and multi-tasking skills. Healthy A caregiver living a healthy lifestyle will often be a better influence on your children than a caregiver who isnt overly concerned about nutrition or exercise. You want to make sure the good habits you find important are followed. Reliable You need a caregiver you can depend on to show up on time and do what is expected. Kristena Coleman of Bellevue, Washington. says, I need someone who is reliable and who can become a member of our extended family. I want them to have fun and play with my children, but I want to know theyre going to follow through with their commitment at the same time.
