A Surefire Way to Find In-Home Care You Can Trust Despite the Distance

Grandmother with WalkerOn a recent visit to your mom in Downey, you discovered a few alarming signs that she needs help around the house; plus, it seems like her mental acuity is such that you seriously wonder if you should move across the states to live with her.  However, you are in the middle of a successful, thriving career, and your family depends on you.  The job market is super competitive in California and you can’t afford to resign and relocate unless you have an equally promising career that will pay you the salary you want.  How do you find a trustworthy 24 hour caregiver who won’t take advantage of your elderly loved one?

Signs of a Trustworthy Home Care Agency

Having heard of all kinds of caregiver scams, we’re sure you are reluctant to find someone from a private advertisement, yet you’re not sure which agency to use to find a trustworthy live-in caregiver.  The following list of traits should be characteristic of every private home care agency:

 

  • Licensed, bonded and insured
  • Long-standing reputation
  • Solid establishment
  • Excellent client testimonials
  • 24 Hour Access to customer service
  • Experienced, friendly personnel

Being licensed, bonded and insured is extremely important for home care agencies, as they are not regulated by the government.  In light of the overwhelming number of fraud cases that have exploded in the last ten years, it’s crucial to find an agency that will protect your elderly loved one and your assets.  Insurance companies will not cover a home care agency if even one employee or caregiver has a tainted criminal background.  And the farther away you live from your loved one, the more important it is to have a peace of mind, knowing that you are relying on a reputable home care agency in another state.
