William asks…

I need someone to take care of my dad. .?

My mom will be away for a few months. i need someone who is medically trained to come once or twice a day to come and check in, probably help him with meals and medication. He stays in secunderand. I would prefer if the caregiver is from a reputed agency.
We have relatives closeby , but as they have their own families, they are unable to come and take care of him everyday. I would rather not have him cook because I dont want him to get tired. I stay abroad and my job permits me to visit india frequently, but i cant stay back with him.

Healthadvisor answers:

Make sure who ever it is has a good background check. I worked with older people and some of the workers were not very good and one in particular dropped a lady I normally took care of. They need some type of actual nursing background to know what they are doing. LVN is good.

Laura asks…

Who’s responsible?

Music program taking place inside a school classroom, as part of an Afterschool Program run by an outside agency. Child asks Afterschool Program Caregiver to use expensive guitars on loan to the school for this class. Caregiver agrees and takes them out of the school closet. One is leaned up against a table by a child. Hired Outside Music Teacher is using a computer on this table to record a Asking Child singing on a microphone in the middle of the room. Second child is off to the side, Third child is behind the table moving to the music and watching computer. Caregiver is sitting in chair in the opposite corner watching the singing. Crash! Everyone runs over. Guitar against table has slid down and broken on the carpet. Child off to the side accuses the Dancing Child behind the table of bumping the guitar while dancing.

In your opinion, who’s responisible for the broken guitar?

Healthadvisor answers:

I guess technically it would be the child that leaned it up against the table in the first place…had that not happened then there never would have been a broken guitar! Howerver, since the Outside Music Teacher agreed to let the child use it then he/she should have been watching out so that it wouldn’t happened.
That teacher didn’t do her job, thus resulting in a child recklessly sitting a guitar up against a table…

In your opinion, who’s responisible for the broken guitar?

Healthadvisor answers:

Sadly, I believe that the responsibility lies with the Caregiver, as it was the Caregiver’s decision to remove the items from the school closet. Assuming the Caregiver is an adult, when accepting the position as “Afterschool Program Caregive”, that person also accepted all responsibilities that came with the position. In the order of events given in your description, the Caregiver was the first adult to make the decision to use the expensive items; and assuming the “children” are not of legal age, the first authorized adult to make the decision assumes that responsibility for the protection & care of the items.
That’s my opinion.
