Sharing a caregiver

One way to cut down on the expense of hiring an in-home caregiver is to hire someone jointly with another family. Sometimes called nanny sharing, this arrangement can greatly reduce your costs.

Sharing a caregiver can be complicated, however. Instead of simply working things out between your family and the caregiver, you have to consider the needs, schedule, and style of a second family. It becomes even more important for everyone involved to know what's expected of them and what the boundaries are. Clear and frequent communication is essential.
