Area Agencies on Aging provide resources for elderly people and their families, including elder caregiver leads. Local Councils on Aging are also good resources for finding caregivers for elderly family members.
Every state has Area Agencies on Aging, known as "Triple As," says PBS. Families can contact the Triple A nearest to them for elder caregiver referrals in their communities. Councils on the Aging offer similar referral services. Seniors who have health insurance or the ability to pay can contact home health agencies directly to hire caregivers. Some elder caregivers advertise their services in classified ads in local newspapers and online.
