Hi everyone,

since the latest patch (20th December 2018) caregiver arrives at my household without being called first and expects me to pay him for turning up. My family's budget does not approve and I am not happy about it either. Does this happen to anyone else? Is there a way to solve it? Thanks for all answers.

 

Regards

Majda

Re: Caregiver arrives without being called

★★ Guide
I had a similar situation play out in one of my households in my most GF save. After a sudden expansion of the family (semi-long story), I caved in and had one of the parents hire a nanny to look after the toddlers and babies for the day so the 1 parent that was home could get some work done. The nanny ended up staying over a day unprompted and then I finally got the "time is up" notice. Next day, the nanny showed up again but no one had called. I'm like, does the game think I need more help? lol Anyway, I had an emergency in another household so I had to flip over there for a moment. And, when I got back to his family again, the nannies had doubled--the original and a new one. I had my sim dismiss them both individually and they haven't returned unprompted again. IDK if this helps, but hope it was an entertaining story of what happened to me (regarding this issue). :D

My nanny never leaves anymore at all. I'm not sure what's going on with them.

I haven’t used nannies much but I just assumed I should use the dismiss option when I was done, and they left.

Then when I needed them again, I called and hired.

Maybe it’s a continuous service until you dismiss?
