Background Screening for Senior Home Care

Posted by Vanessa Vidal, FPC on Sep 25, 2013 3:42:00 PM
Our aging parents deal with physical and sometimes mental declines that challenge their ability to completely take care of themselves on their own.  They don’t like the idea of moving out of their homes to a senior care facility.  How will they safely age at home, in a safe and happy environment?

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.

Posted by Kathy Webb on Feb 13, 2013 4:12:00 PM

Nannies and senior caregivers are hired to help keep loved ones safe and well cared for. 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.
