Should I perform a personal background check before hiring an independent home care provider?

Paying to run a personal background check on an independent home care provider prior to hiring him may seem like an extraordinary and extreme measure to some, but in reality, it’s one of the tasks that should be at the top of your to-do list.

Remember, you’re not hiring this person to wash your car – you’re entrusting her with the care and well-being of your friend or loved one. Nothing is more important than that. You may even want to consider taking it a step further and conducting a criminal background check. To find out more about how you can check an applicant’s criminal record, talk to an attorney in your area.
