When hiring privately, the caregiver duties are usually verbally discussed between the caregiver and elder only. This can result in misunderstanding. Ask the agency or the caregiver to put the plan of care in writing.

Having this information recorded not only avoids misunderstandings, but also helps the family and the substitute caregivers.
