Caregiver Background Checks
People who require a caregiver can be particularly vulnerable, many people get taken advantage of by their care giver for this reason. You need to know that you can trust the people taking care of your loved ones, having Caregiver background checks done to know that your caregiver has a clean history is a big step in the right direction. The news never runs stories about the caregivers who do an excellent job. We’ve all heard the stories of caregivers who abused, stole from, or otherwise harmed the person they were supposed to care for.
Different Types of Caregivers
Caregivers typically fall into one of two categories: home and personal.
- Home caretakers will take care of basic house needs, such as cleaning, transportation, grocery shopping.
- Personal caretakers will typically take care of some basic house needs like a home caretaker, and will also have some duties similar to that of a nurse. Responsibilities such as administering medication, assisting with medical equipment, or monitoring vitals.
A “bad hire” caretaker for the home can be bad. They might steal from you, improperly clean the home, or ignore certain responsibilities. A “bad hire” personal caretaker can be disastrous. Improperly performing some of their responsibilities can be dangerous. Ensuring their qualifications is necessary to make sure you hired the right person for your loved one.
How a Background Screening can help
Caregiver Background Checks can help give you peace of mind. Knowing that your loved one is in the hands of someone with a clean history and good intentions is priceless. It is part of your responsibility to ensure that your caregiver provides the highest standards of care when you are not around. Caregiver Background Screenings can give you a lot of valuable information about their past and the character of the person you are hiring. A caregiver with a history of domestic violence might not be a good fit to care for an elderly loved one. Someone on the sex offender registry cannot care for children.
