Tax deductions and credits should be handled by your tax advisor (accountant, CPA). If the person you hire is your employee (W2) or an independent contractor (1099), your tax advisor will advise you on the deductions available to you.

You may want to get a definitive answer from a CPA, but in my opinion there is no deduction for this type of expense.
