When you are hiring someone as a live in caregiver, make sure you take all the necessary steps after you hear from the agency about their choices. It is best to meet the candidate in person and interview him or her. Ask the live-in siter how he or she would handle different situations, like discipline, playtime, sleeptime etc. Make sure to check the references of the nanny candidate and ask them if they have taken any courses in childcare or CPR. Define your expectations of the live-in caregiver and clearly define their responsibilities.
