More Families are Background Screening Senior Caregivers

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on Jan 5, 2016 7:00:00 AM

There are a lot of news stories about seniors being taken advantage of. Sometimes it is physical abuse that you hear about and other times there are reports of senior scams that drain bank accounts. Seniors everywhere are being used rather than cared for, so in order to keep your loved one from becoming a victim, quality background checks are needed for caregivers and household employers.

Today an estimated 3.4 million senior home care givers provide support services to an aging population that emphatically wants to ‘age in place.’ To meet continued demand, the U.S. needs an additional 1.6 million caregivers by 2020. While most families turn to senior care agencies to provide support personnel to aging family members, an increasing number of families prefer to hire directly, citing both reduced costs and greater control over caregiver selection as their primary motivations.

Recently a Texas nanny that the hiring family thought was well screened was arrested and charged with child endangerment after the mom returned home and found the nanny drunk and passed out and her 20 month old free to roam the home. Turns out the nanny has quite a history of prior offenses, none of which were found because of the type of 'background check' run. Stories like these make families wonder how they can better screen their caregivers.
