How should I handle the finances with the loved one I am caring for

Thank you so much for all the love in this group. I've been helping to take care of my grandmother part time for a year now and she is in need of more care. Going to bring in an agency part-time to help with cooking and errands and such. How should I handle the finances with the caregiver? Do I pay the agency directly and they pay for groceries or do I give them my grandma's debit card? IDK

I would not give them access to the debit card or anything else personally based - if you are hiring them, as the authorized agent (Financial POA - Healthcare POA / Guardian / Conservator) for your grandmother, you should pay them from her funds.
