More Families are Background Screening Senior Caregivers

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on 1/5/16 7:00 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. The National Institute on Aging estimates that there are about 7 million Americans that are long-distance caregivers for their aging parents and for this reason, reputable caregivers are needed to help bridge the gap for those that cannot make it over daily to help take care of their loved ones.

Background Screening for Senior Home Care

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. 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.
