Another idea would be to ask the exiting caregiver to write down the information she believes would help the new caregiver to help the Mom feel comfortable, such as any routines, what the Mom likes best about what the exiting caregiver does or says, etc.
At the same time try and get Mom to verbalize or write down what she likes most about the existing caregiver such as personality traits, what she does or says that is special, what she would like most in a new caregiver etc.
If you could drop in from time to time when the new caregiver is beginning would also make your Mom feel better. Familiarity brings a lot of comfort.
